MIAMI, March 30 (UPI) -- Serbian Novak Djokovic and Argentine Guillermo Canas won semifinal matches Friday at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, setting up a title showdown Sunday.

Djokovic, the 10th seed, easily beat Britain's Andy Murray Friday, 6-1, 6-0.

Canas -- who reached the semis after shocking Roger Federer Tuesday -- advanced to the finals with a 7-5, 6-2, win over seventh-seeded Croat Ivan Ljubicic.

Djokovic -- who will be appearing in his third final of 2007, and the sixth of his career -- got help from the 12th-seeded Murray, who committed five doubles faults and had his serve broken five times in six service games.

Canas broke serve on Ljubicic to go up, 6-5, in the first set and held serve to take the set. He went on to win the final four games of the second set.

A victory Sunday will be worth $533,350.
