Almagro beats Roddick in Miami exhibition final

Nicolas Almagro beat Andy Roddick 6-4, 7-5 in the Miami Tennis Cup exhibition final on Sunday.
Roddick, who retired at the U.S. Open, was broken once in each set. He dropped the ninth game of the first set at 30-40 on a netted backhand. Roddick saved a break point in the ninth game of the second set but had no answer for an Almagro forehand crosscourt passing shot at 30-40 in the 11th game.
Almagro lost both times he played Roddick in tour matches. One of those losses came here in Key Biscayne in the 2010 Sony Open quarterfinals.
On Saturday, Roddick defeated U.S. Open champion and Olympic Gold medalist Andy Murray. Roddick was given a bike during an on-court ceremony. The changeover “chairs” for the event were couches, and among the highlights of the event were the ballgirls, chosen specially for the event.
