British Andy Murray outplayed Spanish David Ferrer in the final of the Ericsson Masters 1000 in Miami and from tomorrow he will appear as world’s number two. It is his second Masters 1000 title in Miami.
Murray beat Ferrer 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 in a match filled with errors and 15 breaks, seven of them in the third set, where Ferrer had to be treated three times over cramps.
Ferrer had a match point in the twelfth game of the third set when he stopped the game and requested a “challenge” to review a Murray’s ball to the bottom line.
Murray won the match in two hours and 45 minutes and prevented Ferrer from becoming the first Spanish man to win the Masters 1000 in Miami.
