Victory over Ferrer in Miami has Brit in good spirits as clay-court season nears

Andy Murray's razor-thin victory over David Ferrer for the Miami Masters crown will send the Scot to No 2 in the world rankings for the second time in his career, but he was too tired to celebrate on Sunday.

Murray rallied after a slow start in the opening set and survived a Hawk-Eye replay call at match-point down in the final set to subdue Spain's Ferrer 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7/1) in a punishing match in the heat and humidity of Key Biscayne.
