Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Ebden clinched the Miami Masters in what was a marathon final. As a result, at 44, Bopanna secured his sixth ATP Masters 1000 title, surpassing his own record and becoming the oldest player to achieve this milestone. Bopanna was ecstatic about the summit clash win as he continued an “amazing year”. 

“This is a dream run. As I say, Level 44. It’s been an amazing year,” Bopanna exclusively told RevSportz just after the final win in Miami.

In an intense final match, they defeated Ivan Dodic and Austin Krajicek. Despite facing a tough challenge, they rallied back after losing the first set in a tiebreaker, ultimately sealing their victory in a super tiebreak against the second-seeded opponents.

Their triumph came with a scoreline of 6-7(3) 6-3 [10-6]. Prior to this final showdown, Bopanna and his Australian partner Ebden breezed into the men’s doubles final with a convincing straight-set win over Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos.

Their journey to the final saw them effortlessly dispatching the Spanish-Argentinian duo with a score of 6-1 6-4 in the semifinals, showcasing their dominance on the court. This victory also marks a significant return to form for Bopanna, who had briefly slipped to the second spot in the doubles rankings following recent tournament setbacks.

However, with this semifinal win, Bopanna not only reclaimed the top spot but also solidified his status as a tennis legend.
