Djokovic leads parade of champions in Miami

23-Mar-2014 :

Miami: World number two Novak Djokovic led a parade of champions that included Roger Federer and Andy Murray into the third round of the Sony Open on Friday.


The best of men’s and women’s tennis was on display at Crandon Park with the winners of over 30 grand slam singles titles all in centre court action.


After Federer and Djokovic’s successes, Venus Williams registered a straight sets win and Li Na advanced in a walkover, it was left to defending champion Murray to provide a bit of late night drama, taming Australian Matthew Ebden 3-6 6-0 6-1 as the clock approached midnight.


Murray, who split with coach Ivan Lendl earlier in the week, got the contest off to an unsteady start when Ebden broke him at the first opportunity and then held serve to quickly jump in front 3-0 on his way to easily taking the opening set.
