FINAL REVIEW - DJOKOVIC WINS INDIAN WELLS-MIAMI DOUBLE FOR SECOND TIME

•    Novak Djokovic claims the Indian Wells-Miami double for a second time.
•    Djokovic becomes just the second player to achieve the feat, following in the footsteps of Roger Federer (2005-06), whom he beat two weeks ago in the final of the BNP Paribas Open.
•    Djokovic first clinched the back-to-back March ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments during a record-breaking run at the start of 2011.
•    It is the fourth time that Djokovic has won the Miami crown, having previously triumphed in 2007 (d. Canas), 2011 (d. Nadal) and 2012 (d. Murray). The 26 year old has won 18 of his past 19 matches at Crandon Park.
•    Victory marks Djokovic’s 43rd tour-level title and 18th at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 level.
•    In their 40th meeting – the most frequent Open Era match-up – Djokovic recorded his third win in a row over Rafael Nadal and reduced the FedEx ATP Head2Head deficit to 18-22.
•    Between them, Djokovic and Nadal now hold all nine of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles. Djokovic has won the past four.
•    Nadal finishes runner-up at Crandon Park for a fourth time, having previously lost out in 2005 (l. to Federer), 2008 (l. to Davydenko) and 2011 (l. to Djokovic)

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Djokovic
: "This tournament has been perfect from the beginning to the end. The matches that I have played I played really well, and I elevated my game as the tournament progressed. The best performance of the tournament came in the right moment on Sunday against the biggest rival."

"I didn't have any letdowns throughout the whole match. I was in a very high level: serve, backhand, crosscourt, forehand. I have done everything right, and I'm thrilled with my performance."

Nadal: "Today Novak played at very high level in my opinion and was better than me. I tried everything. I tried my best. Was not enough. The opponent was just better than me, and when the opponent is better, he's better. That's the sport. I need to work hard, to try to be in better shape for clay. 

"It's a positive week for me after everything. Losing early in Indian Wells and being able to play the final here, I had a lot of points for me, a few good matches, confidence again to start the very important part of the season for me."
