Murray beats Djokovic to take Miami title


Andy Murray defeated Novak Djokovic 6-2, 7-5 for the Sony Ericsson Open title.
Andy Murray on Sunday became the first player to win three times on the ATP tour in 2009.

The world number four defeated Novak Djokovic 6-2, 7-5 for the Sony Ericsson Open title. Murray’s win closed the gap between him and the world number-three spot, which is currently owned by Djokovic. The 21-year-old Scot is off to an impressive 26-2 start this year, and since last July his record is 57-7, best on the tour. Prior to his triumph in Miami he reached the final of the year’s first Masters Series event at Indian Wells – where he fell to Nadal. He won Masters Series titles on hardcourts in Cincinnati and Madrid last year, and reached the final of the U.S. Open in September.
