Djokovic wins fourth Indian Wells title
March 22, 2015
Indian Wells/USA — World No. 1 Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer 6-3, 6-7(5), 6-2 to win the Indian Wells Masters title for a second year in a row. Djokovic, who recommends the HEAD Graphene XT Speed, joined Federer on four titles at the Tennis Garden. He has now won two this season after beating fellow HEAD player Andy Murray in the Australian Open final.
Djokovic lifted his record against Federer to 18-20 and improved to 21-10 at the Masters 1000 level. The HEAD ambassador was playing in his 31st Masters final and now owns 50 career trophies.
“It’s great that I managed to win this match in the big tournament and to win it in a way that I felt like I was the better player on the court. That definitely will help for the future,” said Djokovic.
In a HEAD-to-HEAD semi-final, Djokovic dominated Andy Murray 6-3, 6-2 to win his sixth straight match over his fellow HEAD Racquet Rebel, who endorses the HEAD Graphene Radical.
Murray put in a fighting effort against his career-long rival: “At the middle of both sets, I started to play a bit better and made it tougher and was able to push him a bit, but not enough at the beginning of the sets to make it challenging enough for him,” said the Scot ranked fourth. “When playing against Novak you obviously know what to expect. He’s extremely consistent these days, he rarely plays poor matches – one or two a year; whereas maybe a couple of years ago it might have been a few more.”
