Murray beats Djokovic, wins tournament

Latest update : 2009-04-06

Scottish Andy Murray has won the Masters 1000 Miami tournament, Murray's third of the season. The world number four beat Serbian Novak Djokovic in two sets (6-2, 7-5).

AFP - Britain's Andy Murray beat Serbia's Novak Djokovic 6-2, 7-5 on Sunday to win the Miami Masters.

The world number four wrapped up his third title of 2009 after reeling off the last five games of the second set having seen Djokovic, the world number three, throw away his chance to level the final.

The Serbian, the champion here in 2007, had served for the second set leading 5-3, but a fifth double fault disrupted his fightback and his game quickly fell apart.

Murray, the first British finalist here for 25 years, took victory when Djokovic went long with a lame volley after an hour and 42 minutes on court.

The 21-year-old Murray, who had raced through the first set with two breaks taking him to 4-0, has now won three Masters titles. He was the champion in Cincinnati and Madrid in 2008.
