KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) - Andy Murray has erased a championship point and rallied past David Ferrer 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (1) in the final of the Sony Open.
One point from defeat in the last set, Murray skipped a forehand off the far baseline to stay in the match Sunday. He then dominated the tiebreaker, while Ferrer appeared to cramp and collapsed to the court after one rally.
CBS cut away from the final when it went to the tiebreaker to join the start of the NCAA tournament game between Michigan and Florida. The network later showed a replay of match point.
Murray also won the title in 2009. His path to this year's championship was made easier because Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal skipped the tournament and Novak Djokovic lost in the fourth round.
