Novak Djokovic beats Andy Murray 6-1 7-6 (4) and wins two consecutive Sony Ericsson Open titles, at Key Biscayne, Miami. It's the third time Nole wins this championship (2007, 2011, 2012).

With this victory sunday at Crandon Park, the Serbian wins his 11th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title, and he is also the first player to win in Miami without losing a set.

Novak Djokovic loves playing in Miami, as his been claiming through his Facebook page and also to the press. "I've won three times here. I think that says enough about how I feel playing in Miami. I love the crowd... I have been really playing well in the last couple of years here, so this is going to be very encouraging for me prior to the clay-court season.", said the World nº1 in a press conference after the game.

The match lacked in intensity, specially due to the weak performance of Andy Murray, World nº 4. The high temperatures and humidity in Miami seemed to affect both players, and their pace in this final.

The next major tournament will take place in the glamorous hill-city of Monte Carlo, between 14 and 22nd of April. The Monte Carlo Rolex Masters (ATP World Tour Masters 1000) sets the beginning of the clay-court season.
