Federer beats Nadal to win Miami Open for third time
Roger Federer overcame long-term rival Rafael Nadal to win the Miami Open for the third time and continue his remarkable start to the season, the BBC wrote.
The 35-year-old built on January’s Australian Open win and his March Indian Wells success with a convincing 6-3 6-4 win over the Spaniard, according to the BBC.
The BBC added that the pair shared 10 break points in the opening set, with Federer the only man to take one to crucially move 5-3 up.
He exuded control throughout, breaking at 4-4 in the second and serving out, it indicated.
A sweeping backhand down the line in the final game summed up the confidence which poured from the champion from start to finish as he moved to an 11-match winning streak and improved his record to 19 wins and just one defeat in 2017, the BBC explained.
