Rafa and Novak are on Fire
I really thought that Del Potro had a great chance of winning the Miami final but it seems that the heat got to him and he lost to Fish in the Quarter Final. Still hoping for big things from Del Potro this year though.
As it turned out it will be another Nadal and Djokovic final. They played each other recently in the Indian Wells final, with Djokovic making a come back to win 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
Rafa beat Nishikori, Dolgopolov, Berdych and Federer to make it to the final, only dropping one set along the way to Berdych and capped off by a very convincing 6-3, 6-2 win over Federer in the semi final.
Djokovic beat Istomin, Blake, Troicki and Fish without dropping any sets. Read more in Djokovic eyes Masters 1000 double
Can Djokovic win again, or will Rafa be able to turn it around?

Fish Heats Up
Mardy Fish made it through to the Miami semi final (losing to Djokovic) and in doing so replaced Andy Roddick as the US No.1 male tennis player.
Quoting from the Bleacher Report:
Fish is shocked and proud of his new career high, “I’ve never been in this position before. Obviously it’s very humbling. This is a pretty big country, a lot of people playing tennis. So I’ll try to put it into perspective, and I will. No. 11, career high No. 11 sounds really good, too. You know, these are the rewards that come with working as hard as I did.”
Murray is Fried

Following up his early round loss at Indian Wells, Andy Murray once again lost his first match, beaten by A Bogomolov Jr.
Quoting Murray from Bleacher Report:
“I mean, I played poorly last two weeks. You know, I was happier with the way that I competed this week than last. But, yeah, I mean, confidence could have something to do with that. You know, the same thing happened around, you know, the same time last year. You know, I have been practicing well, training well, and then the matches can’t get anything going.”
Realising that he needs to make some changes, Murray is moving on from working with Alex Corretja.
Andy played so well in the Australian Open until the final against Djokovic but it’s been all down hill since then.
He will be slaughtered by the British media if his bad form continues through to Wimbledon so for his sake I hope he gets his confidence back soon.
Until next time
