Congrats to Novak Djokovic for winning his 6th Miami Open title, and with it a fourth Indian Wells-Miami double. Djokovic didn’t drop a set all tournament by defeating Kei Nishikori 63, 63 to win a record 28th career Masters 1000 title, breaking the tie he and Rafael Nadal shared at 27. It’s the first time he’s led in the category!
“I’m obviously very pleased with the way I played today. I think the two best matches I played on the hard court season at Indian Wells and Miami came both in finals, so I couldn’t pick better timing to perform my best,” Djokovic said.
All Time Masters 1000 Titles
1) Novak Djokovic 28
2) Rafael Nadal 27
3) Roger Federer 24
4) Andre Agassi 17
5) Andy Murray 11
5) Pete Sampras 11
Djokovic, who has won 9 of the last 11 Masters events he’s played, will try to add to his record total next Monday in Monte Carlo where he is the defending champion.
“I look forward to Monte Carlo,” he said. “That’s where I live. That club is the club I visit the most throughout the year. That’s where I practice the last 8, 9 years. I feel like that’s a home tournament.
“I look forward to going back and see my wife and son and enjoy this victory.”
And later this summer Djokovic will again try to win Cincinnati for a first time which would give him titles at all nine.
