Andy Murray has defeated David Ferrer in the Miami Masters final to move above Roger Federer and up to number two in the world rankings.

The Scot recorded a 2-6 6-4 7-6 (7/1) victory over the Spaniard, coming back from match point down late in the third set.

Murray was far from his best for long periods of a gruelling encounter, losing the first set and seeing his own serve frequently broken by his Spanish opponent.

But after two hours and 45 minutes, he dismissed Ferrer in the tie-break to lift the trophy for the second time in his career.
