World number one Novak Djokovic thwarted British Number One Andy Murray again in their latest clash in a final of a tournament, this time it was at the Miami Open with a 7-6 (7-3), 4-6, 6-0 scoreline. This latest victory gave Djokovic his fifth Miami title and increased his match record lead against Murray 18-8, with the Serb winning their last seven meetings, including the Australian Open final back in January.
Djokovic has now equalled Rafael Nadal’s total of 141 weeks at the top of the world rankings and it’s not all bad news for Murray, 27 as his semi-final place at the recent Indian Wells tournament and finishing runner-up in Miami means he has moved up the world ranking from fourth to third. This Saturday will see him tie the know with long-term girlfriend Kim Sears at the cathedral in his hometown of Dunblane in Scotland, followed by the reception at Cromlix House in nearby Kinbuck which Murray owns.
Over in the women’s event world number one Serena Williams beat Carla Suarez Navarro from Spain making short work of her opponent 6-2, 6-0 to win her third consecutive final and an impressive eighth Miami Open title.
