Andy Roddick and Andy Murray: All smiles after exhibition match
Andy Roddick came out of retirement to defeat Andy Murray 6-2 6-3 in the Miami Tennis Cup exhibition event.
The American, who ended his professional career after the US Open earlier this year, was always on top against the world No 3 as he booked a final showdown with Nicolas Almagro of Spain.
Almagro, who has lost to Roddick in straight sets in both their meetings, advanced with a 6-3 6-4 win over American John Isner.
Roddick said: "If we had gone three sets I would've had a full body cramp and it would've been awkward for all of you. Andy was nice to me tonight.
"There's no comeback. I don't miss the travel at all.
"It's nice coming here and seeing familiar faces. I still enjoy hitting tennis balls, but I haven't lost that part of it. I haven't lost any of the innocent parts of tennis. I just do it in front of less people."
British No 1 Murray said: "Andy hasn't hit that many balls the last few months. Maybe his timing was a little bit off, but he still hits the ball very well.
"It was only a few months ago he was making a decent run at the US Open."
