What The Players Said
Djokovic: “Every year that I come back to Miami I do go through those memories from back in 2007. It was the first Masters 1000 I won and opened a lot of doors for me. It gave me a lot of self-belief. I started to realize that I’m able to win the big trophies and to beat the best players in the world.

“So of course this is a [special] place for me to come back to, now winning it six times. Obviously I don’t take any win for granted and especially in the big ones. So it was my best performance of the tournament. It came at the right time against a great quality player.”

Nishikori: “I don’t know for other players, but it’s tough to find his weakness. I had a couple of strategies before this match, but I don’t think I did well enough to beat him today. I was missing a lot with my forehand and made too many unforced errors.

“He has great defense, so it’s tough to break his game. He was very patient and he didn’t miss. It’s always tough to play Novak.”
