Rafael Nadal did not have luck this time either, as his longtime rival, Roger Federer, beat him for the third time this year. The Spaniard really wanted his title, as he never won the finale at Miami Open before.
Federer’s win, on the other hand, was sweet. The Swiss was in a great shape and delivered one of the best games ever, winning each set.
Even at 35, Roger manages to deliver the best games ever. He is in the best shape of his life and he loves it.
After the game, he did reveal that he needs to rest, these three months of 2017 have been pretty tiring for him. It’s not easy, indeed, to win three major competitions.
He is going to rest for a while as he has another major competition at the end of May, The French Open. The Swiss’ main goal now is to be healthy, because this is the only way to reach success.
Not only that he win, but he made history with his win, as he is the oldest man in over thirty years to win this tournament.
The score was of 6 to 3 and 6 to 4. The Spaniard played extremely good as well, but it looks like the odds were on Federer’s side.
Before the big match, Rafa declared that it feels good to play against his long rival. He really wished to win, especially here.
Roger also opened up about his rival before the match. He said that it is always great to play against Rafael, because he is such a challenge. The fact that the public enjoys it is even better.
