Roger Federer's astonishing 2017 run shows no sign of abating.

Federer's won his third title of the year, beating Rafael Nadal in straight sets to win the Miami Open for the third time and first since 2006.

After winning the Australian Open, Indian Wells and Miami, Federer said he's no longer on the comeback trail.

"I'm happy that nothing major happened throughout this period - it's been a dream run on the court and off the court as well, my body's reacted very well and I couldn't be happier."

Federer now plans a lengthy break before getting ready for the French Open next month.
