The final days  of the Miami Open ended on a bang for some and a whimper for others.

On the women's side, Johanna Konta defeated Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, securing her place as the first British woman to win the Florida WTA Premier title. Her sharp angles and cautious style of play wore at Wozniacki, causing Konta to secure 33 winners on her way to victory. She will rise to No. 7 in the rankings, breaking back into the top 10.

In doubles, Jack Sock and Nicholas Monroe's winning streak ran out as the Americans couldn't rally against Łukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo in the finals, losing in straight sets, 7-5, 6-3. The Polish/Brazilian duo quickly took control of the match in the second set, taking the victory in just under 90 minutes.
