Incredible Djokovic upsets Nadal in Miami Final

The men’s singles final of the Sony Ericsson Open, parallelling 1995 in many ways, was historic for the world top two ranked and most on-form players. Finally, Djokovic defeated Nadal in a thrilling 3 hours and 21 minutes marathon win by a smothery tiebreaker in the final set. The final score was 4-6 6-3 7-6.

Djokovic hit 40 winners to Nadal's 25 but also committed 40 unforced errors that pushed this match to extreme competitive heights. Nadal’s 6 double faults also could explain something about his lose one more time to Djokovic after the Indian Wells final. From now on, Djokovic showed a dreamlike open of 2011 with 26 wins in a row and four big titles (in Melbourne, Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami).

I feel sorry for Rafa about his back-to-back runner up to Djokovic in the American spring masters hardcourt season and wish him a red-hot form as last year in clay court season.  I also happy for Nole for his supremacy this year and enjoy good times.
