Rafael Nadal has lost in straight sets in the Miami Open final to Roger Federer.
Fifth seed Rafa was defeated 6-3, 6-4 in Miami, in what is his fifth loss in the Miami Open final, two of which have been to Roger Federer.
After the match, Rafa said:
Well done to Roger, I am very happy for him.
I just want to say thank you to everybody here, it’s been a good two weeks for me in Miami. It’s been a good start to the season and it’s disappointing for me to always be in this position here with the smaller trophy…
I’m going to keep trying hard over the next couple of years and hopefully I won’t have to wait three years again to fight for the title.
Better luck next time, Rafa!
