Miami Open presented by Itaú, Miami, U.S.A.

Top seed and world No. 1 Novak Djokovic continued his brilliant play on Tour in Key Biscayne, Florida on Sunday, defeating Andy Murray 7-6(3), 4-6, 6-0 to capture the Miami Open title. After a first set which lasted 67 minutes, Murray stayed the course to claim the second set and push a decider. With the title hanging in the balance, Djokovic turned his game up a notch to bagel the Brit and take his seventh straight win over the Brit.

Completing his third career Indian Wells and Miami double, Djokovic remains the undisputed world No. 1 player. Murray, who has not defeated Djokovic, Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal since 2013, will return to World No. 3 on Monday.

Djokovic is next slated to compete at the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters, while Murray will take a break from the Tour to marry longtime girl Kim Sears and then participate at the Madrid Masters in Spain.
