Djokovic beats Murray in Miami

11:26 am on 27 March 2014

World men's tennis number two Novak Djokovic has ended Andy Murray's reign as Miami Masters champion, beating the sixth seeded Briton in straight sets to advance to the semi-finals.

For Djokovic, a three-time winner on the Miami hardcourts, the victory was a small measure of revenge as the rivals clashed for the first time since Murray beat the Serb in last year's Wimbledon final.

The road to a fourth Miami title does not get any easier for Djokovic with a possible semi-final meeting with 17-times grand slam winner and two-time Miami champion Roger Federer up next.

Federer, who lost to Djokovic in the final of the Indian Wells Open 10 days ago, takes on Japan's Kei Nishikori in another quarter-final later today.
