The world no. 2 Andy Murray was blown away by the Serb in the first set by 6-2 but very quickly Murray adjusted his momentum and captured the second set by 3-6. The game was ruled by world no. 1 Novak Djokovic as he trashed Murray in the third set by 6-3 thereby by adding another trophy on his self. The last set lasted for 14-minute as Djokovic survived six deuces and seven break points to hold for the match.

“The first couple of break points I remember making two mistakes,” said Murray.

“It was kind of back and forth from there and unfortunately I couldn’t quite break, which was a shame because both of us on the break points until that last game were pretty clinical,” he added.

The defeat brings Murray to the third spot in the world ranking as he lost his second position to Roger Federer.

And with this win Djokovic now moves ahead of Spain’s Rafael Nadal with a record 29 ATP Masters 1000 titles. He has also registered his dominance as he claimed his fifth title in the past six Masters tournaments.
