Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic met in the championship match on Sunday in the 2011 Sony Ericsson Open.
The 2011 Sony Ericsson Open (Miami Masters) has concluded and Novak Djokovic, true to the form that he has been on for the last few months, has won as he took down the prestigious hard court title 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4) over world number one Rafael Nadal.
Djokovic, as he did at ATP Indian Wells, persevered despite losing the first set to Nadal as the Serb produced an impressive comeback. Djokovic has fought well in the second and third set to accomplish a marvelous victory against the world no.1 and winning his fourth title of the season.
Djokovic found the rhythm in the second set and played well, especially in the service games and said that it was one of the best matches, which he has played for a long time and think everybody enjoyed it, even us playing.
It was very close, and up to the last stroke, we really didn’t know which way it’s going to go. He wanted to make Nadal play an extra shot, not to give him a lot of free points and try to get some free points out of the serve, which wasn’t happening to start with.
Nadal said that Djokovic was there fighting until the last point. Nothing left in my body right now, so that’s the sport and says that he love these kinds of matches and smiling said that, for sure he loves to win, not lose. But from everything you learn. He had a fantastic American hard court season, two finals and is ready for clay.
