The unstoppable machine from Serbia, Novak Djokovic became the most successful Masters player ever, by grabbing his 28th ATP 1000 title in Miami, thrashing Kei Nishikori under 90 minutes.
It was far from a flawless game of tennis, as both men looked clumsy at their serves. Ninja’s nerves however, got the better of him, forcing him to make too many unforced errors, that cost him the match. He was never in it to be honest.
“Well played to Novak. I hope I can get you next time! A tough match as always; playing Djokovic is always a great challenge for me, and I always love to come back to Miami. Thanks for my team, and I hope I can win a Masters championship next time.” said Nishikori.
“I hope the love affair continues, and I want to thank my team. I want to thank all you guys for making this tournament extra special: you’re wonderful fans, and I don’t know how much you follow the stories, but I assure you it’s going to stay here for a long time. See you next year!” , said the world number one after his record breaking win.
Here’s how the world reacted as Novak continued his romance with record books:

The Indian Wells / Miami double.
Pete Sampras, one of the greatest ever, managed it once.
Novak Djokovic has done it 4 times. Already.

Hey non-tennis sports people:
What Novak Djokovic is doing right now is insane. INSANE.

Novak Djokovic has made the final of the last 18 big* ATP events. He’s won 15 of them. That’s absurd, you guys.
