Novak Djokovic will play Kei Nishikori in Sunday’s Miami Open final after both went through in straight sets. Serbia’s Djokovic, the five-time champion and world number one, beat Belgian David Goffin 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 on a hot afternoon.
Japanese sixth seed Nishikori beat Australian Nick Kyrgios 6-3 7-5 in the evening session. “It’s going to be tough,” said Nishikori, who has won two of eight matches against Djokovic. “We just played in Australia and I lost in straight sets, so I need to do something better.”
Djokovic, 28, will try to match Andre Agassi’s record haul of six Miami titles, and become the first man to win the Indian Wells-Miami double three years in a row.
