Following immediately on from Indian Wells, the worlds best players will now battle it out at the Miami Masters.

As with all Masters 1000 events there are 1000 points available for the winner, with Murray defending the full total from last year.

Analysis:

RESULT - RODDICK DEFEATS BERDYCH TO WIN MIAMI MASTERS TITLE!


Coming into the tourament Roddick lost ground on nearest rival Soderling with more points dropping off. However, on the back of a run to the final in Indian Wells, Roddick continued to show great form this week. He went one step further and picked up his first Masters Series title since 2006, and overtook Soderling in the process.

Berdych climbed 4 places up to no.16 with a brilliant run to the final, including wins over Federer, Verdasco and Soderling, before finally falling to Roddick.

Once again Federer and Djokovic were out of reach at no.1 and no.2 and faced no threat.

Defending champion Murray needed to retain his title to have any chance of keeping the no.3 spot. A disappointing loss in his first match means Nadal comfortably passes him. Murray will drop to no.4 and will now be right in Del Potro's firing line when the Argentine returns.

Davydenko, out with a broken wrist, actually closes the gap to Del Potro. The Russian has no points to lose this week, compared to Del Potro's semi final spot from last year.

Tsonga, who climbed back into the top 10 last week, was in a close tussle with Gonzalez for the no.10 but has managed to hold onto it after Gonzalez lost in the fourth round.

They've 0-pointed Monfils though... doesnt seem very fair?

http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/Players/Top-Players/Gael-Monfils.aspx?t=rb

And looking at Del Potro's breakdown you can see he got 0pts for Indian Wells, so why not Miami?

Have the ATP screwed up, or am I missing something? <headache>

I am currently investigating this on a more active tennis forums with bigger tennis geeks than ourselves, will let you know when I find out.

I am going to guess it is a mistake on the ATPs part and the 0 pointers will appear next Monday.

A little tough on Soderling to drop a place after replacing a 1st round exit last year with a SF this year.

But there's little difference in practice between 7th and 8th position, and he's increased his lead over 8th place, which is probably more important as far as future draws go.

Berdych, by climbing back into the top 16, is the big winner. And A-Rod, with his first Masters title for about 4 years.

=========================================

Yeh the ATP have corrected that. This afternoon it didn't have it in, same for Davydenko and it was allowing Davydenko to count an extra 250 points.

But the competent guys at the ATP got it fixed.
