Novak Djokovic won Indian Wells but Andy Murray endured a disappointing tournament, so what have we learned? While the world No 1 cruised to a final victory over Milos Raonic this weekend, Murray was licking his wounds from a shock elimination. Air Force 1 Femme En Solde . Hell have an immediate chance to put things right at the Miami Open, live on Sky Sports from Wednesday.Here are five talking points from Indian Wells. Murrays struggles nothing to be concerned about Andy Murray admits he failed to deal with Indian Wells conditions For reasons that even Andy Murray struggles to grasp, he can never find his rhythm playing at Indian Wells. Life in the desert is just too far from home for the Dunblane boy, who historically doesnt performs well in the dry, California air.So a shock loss against Federico Delbonis isnt a disaster, by any means. Murray is now has a 25-11 record at Indian Wells, a peculiarly poor record for the world No 2. He has reached five quarter-finals and was the 2009 runner-up, but has crashed out early twice in recent years. He made a point of stringing his racquet differently and adapting his preparation but still fell short of the desired result at a tournament that has never been his friend.But the tour continues relentlessly to Miami, on the opposite coast of America. Its the city where Murray has always been based for his warm weather training and he has a far deeper understanding of the conditions, and a record at the Miami Open to match. He will fly west to east with even fewer fond memories of Indian Wells. Murray out of Indian Wells Andy Murray suffered a shock defeat against world No 53 Federico Delbonis Djokovic still peerless Novak Djokovic poses with the trophy at Indian Wells Weather, playing conditions and opponents do not seem to concern the dominant Djokovic who predictably tore through the tournament to pick up another trophy, and equal more records in the process. His 27th Masters title has equalled Rafael Nadals haul, and a fifth win at Indian Wells sends him clear of Roger Federers four.Having already collected the Australian Open this year, Djokovic will be red-hot favourite to pick up a 28th Masters title this week in Miami, live on Sky Sports. Last year, Djokovic defeated Andy Murray in the Miami final 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-0. It remains to be seen how any of the chasing pack, Murray included, can deal with the world No 1. Novak claims Indian Wells win Novak Djokovic won a fifth Indian Wells title against Milos Raonic French Open season brings out best in Nadal Highlights of Nadal v Nishikori in the Indian Wells quarter-finals Two months from the French Open, Rafa Nadal reminded us why he has claimed that Grand Slam an unprecedented nine times. The Spaniard has struggled to find trophy-winning form in the past two years but, at Indian Wells, delivered some confidence-boosting thrashings to fellow top-10 players.Most impressively he swept aside world No 6 Kei Nishikori in straight sets with the type of athletic display associated when he was at his prime. He also edged a physically gruelling battle against Fernando Verdasco, and fended off match point against Alexander Zverev to put the prodigious teenager back in his place.There is still plenty of room for improvement - Nadal lost in the semi-finals to Djokovic, a sixth consecutive defeat to the world No 1. But the Serb has one-sided head-to-head records against all of his opponents, and a tight first set must give Nadal hope that he can still compete for the biggest prizes.Raonic fulfilling promise Highlights of Milos Raonic v David Goffin from the semi-finals of Indian Wells Milos Raonic, the Indian Wells runner-up, is enjoying a fine 2016 so far. The Canadian has long been touted as an up-and-coming player but the past two years have been stifled by niggling injuries.Raonic reached the Australian Open semi-finals before losing to Murray, and this weekend fell short in California to Djokovic - his only two defeats of a 14-2 year so far. The world No 12 always had a very tall task to topple Djokovic but that was made significantly harder by an apparent injury which hindered his serve-heavy approach. Expect that world ranking to improve if Raonic can continue in this vein of form - although he needs a high-profile victory against one of the worlds top players to signal his intention.Big guns wont have it easy Stan Wawrinka exited early along with other big names The tournament featured several upsets along the way with only Djokovic able to constantly repel inferior opposition. Fellow top players like Murray and Stan Wawrinka crashed out early as a stern reminder that their position as top five ranked players is constantly under threat.As well as Murrays loss to 25-year-old Delbonis, third seed Wawrinka was beaten in the fourth round by 15th seed David Goffin. Not content with one major scalp, Goffin also dumped out former US Open winner Marin Cilic en route to a semi-final finish. Raonic, during his run to the final, knocked out sixth seed Tomas Berdych. Heading to Miami, there are plenty of reasons for the worlds top players to be on their guard with hungry up-and-comers chasing them down.Watch the Miami Open from Wednesday, live on Sky Sports.By purchasing a Sky Sports Day Pass for £6.99 or Sky Sports Week Pass for £10.99, you can enjoy access to all seven Sky Sports channels and watch on a TV with a NOW TV Box or on a range of devices.

NEW YORK -- The first momentous thing Chris Young did Thursday night was spoil Alex Cobbs bid for a no-hitter, saving the Yankees some embarrassment. Then, he gave them a scintillating victory. Young doubled in the eighth inning for New Yorks first hit and launched a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth that rallied the Yankees to a 5-4 victory over the stunned Tampa Bay Rays. "It feels like youre floating on a cloud. I dont even remember it, to be honest with you," said Young, swarmed by happy teammates and doused with an orange sports drink during his postgame television interview. "All I remember is hitting the ball and being at home plate." Pinch-hitter Martin Prado connected for a two-run shot immediately after Cobb was pulled in the eighth, and the Yankees took two of three in the series by climbing out of a four-run hole for the second consecutive night -- the only times theyve done that all season. Young homered off closer Jake McGee with one out to win it. Clinging to slim playoff hopes, the Yankees finished 5-4 on their penultimate homestand to move within four games of Detroit for the second AL wild card with 18 remaining. Three other teams are between them and the Tigers. Yunel Escobar homered twice and drove in four runs for Tampa Bay. Youngs one-out double ended Cobbs attempt to become the first visiting pitcher to throw a no-hitter at Yankee Stadium since Virgil Trucks did it for the Detroit Tigers in 1952. Six pitchers combined on a no-hitter for the Houston Astros in the Bronx on June 11, 2003. "Wow. I dont think its actually set in yet," Cobb said. He was lifted after Youngs opposite-field drive up the right-centre alley on his 102nd pitch. The right-hander with the funky windup, on quite a roll lately, received a warm hand from a crowd of 32,627 that included former Yankees great Mariano Rivera. "It was tough to break it up at that point," said Cobb, who was a little surprised to be taken out. "At that point I was still in game mode. I looked up at the video board and saw that it was a pretty decent pitch, so I wasnt too upset about it." Prado, on the bench because of a sore hamstring, homered off Brad Boxberger to trim Tampa Bays lead to 4-2. Moments later, Derek Jeter was hit by a pitch in the left elbow and bent over in obvious pain. Jeter stayed in the game, and X-rays were negative. He said he was fine. New York got a bigger scare in the ninth when Chase Headley was struck on the chin by a 98 mph fastball from McGee (4-2). Headley stayed down on his back for a couple of minutes as he was attended to by two trainers. With blood trickling down hhis chin, Headley sat up and walked off the field with both trainers. Achat Nike Air Force One Just Do It. He was taken to a hospital for further evaluation. "It doesnt appear he will need stitches. His teeth are all there. I still think you have to get his jaw X-rayed," manager Joe Girardi said, adding that Headley would not travel with the team to Baltimore but could join the Yankees there at some point Friday. Ichiro Suzuki followed with a double and Young, released last month by the crosstown Mets after a season-long slump, drove an 0-1 pitch to left field for his latest big hit in pinstripes this week. Hes made three starts for the Yankees, all as an injury fill-in during the Tampa Bay series, and finished a triple shy of the cycle Wednesday night. "Hes done an awful lot. They said he was a talented player who had a rough year this year," Girardi said. "Its amazing how things can turn around for a player. ... Thats a huge hit for us." Shawn Kelley (3-5) got two outs for the win. Cobb hasnt yielded more than two runs in any of his past 12 starts, a club record and the longest active streak in the majors. Escobar connected twice off starter Michael Pineda, including a three-run shot, for the first multihomer game of his career. BIG FLY It was Youngs sixth career game-ending homer and New Yorks fourth of the season. His previous one came on Aug. 11, 2011, with Arizona. TOUGH ASSIGNMENT Cobb is 5-1 with a 1.69 ERA in nine starts against the Yankees. RAY MATTER The Yankees said Cobbs gem was the deepest a Tampa Bay pitcher has gone without allowing a hit since Matt Garza pitched the teams only no-hitter against Detroit on July 26, 2010, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. TRAINERS ROOM Rays: Manager Joe Maddon said there was nothing new to report on ailing CF Desmond Jennings (sore left knee), who might miss the rest of the season. Jennings sat out his 13th consecutive game. Yankees: LF Brett Gardner missed his fifth straight game with an abdominal injury. Girardi said he hopes Gardner might be able to play this weekend. ... DH-OF Carlos Beltran (right elbow) sat out for the second straight game. UP NEXT Rays: RHP Nathan Karns looks for his first major league win when he makes his Tampa Bay debut Friday night in Toronto. Karns made three starts for Washington last year. Yankees: RHP Brandon McCarthy (6-4, 2.79 ERA) and rookie RHP Bryan Mitchell will be the starters Friday when the Yankees begin a seven-game road trip with a day-night doubleheader at first-place Baltimore. Mitchell has pitched in one big league game, out of the bullpen on Aug. 10, but was primarily a starter in the minors. ' ' '
