- Murray has played Beijing before, Nole hasn't play Tokyo yet.
Murray was the defending champion in Tokyo which is why he probably chose to play there.

Djokovic wasn't defending champion in Beijing. He won it in '09 and '10 but didn't play it last year. Berdych won it last year but interestingly chose not to defend his title and played in Tokyo instead.

He is 2-3 v Murray in match-ups this year, 8-7 overall.
