Ideas on the Draw

miami open draw thoughts

The highest seed is Carlos Alcaraz, and he has an fascinating draw to navigate with a possible third-round assembly with Andy Murray.

Murray has been again in good type and sometimes performs nicely in Miami, so I’d wish to see that match occur and see if Murray could cause him any issues like he’s finished with the likes of Kyrgios. Nonetheless, the Brit has to get via Dusan Lajovic and Maxime Cressy to make that occur, which isn’t straightforward.

From there, Alcaraz is seeded to face ninth seed Taylor Fritz or seventh seed Holger Rune within the quarter-finals and will face off towards Jannik Sinner within the semi-finals, whom he beat on the identical stage in Indian Wells.

Andrey Rublev and Casper Ruud are the opposite high seeds on this half, with Ruud defending large factors from his runners-up place final yr.

Within the backside half, Stefanos Tsitsipas is the second seed and might be seeking to bounce again from his early loss in Indian Wells.

The Greek has been nursing a shoulder downside not too long ago, however he’s had two weeks of relaxation which ought to have helped. He’s seeded to satisfy seventh seed Felix Auger-Aliassime within the final eight. Frances Tiafoe and Karen Khacahnov are additionally on this quarter.

Indian Wells runner-up Daniil Medvedev additionally finds himself within the backside half of the draw. He’s seeded to satisfy Matteo Berrettini within the fourth spherical and Hubert Hurkacz or Cameron Norrie within the quarter-finals. 

Primarily based on his present type Berrettini doesn’t appear a lot of a menace, having misplaced early in Palm Spring and on the Phoenix Challenger, he entered final week.

Hurkacz lifted the Miami crown in 2021 and made final yr’s semi-final, so he likes the situations right here, and that might be a tough opponent for Medvedev ought to they meet. 

Primarily based on the draw, wanting previous Alcaraz, Hurkacz, Medvedev and Sinner as gamers who can do nicely is troublesome.

Zverev is one to observe to see if he continues his enchancment post-injury, and I’d anticipate Tiafoe to be there or thereabouts.

Kecmanovic also can play nicely within the Florida warmth, and Ruud is a little bit of an unknown, given the beginning of his season.

Attention-grabbing First-Spherical Matches

The opening rounds look fairly skinny to date when it comes to high quality or potential for pleasure, however these are my picks:

  • Alexander Bublik vs JJ Wolf
  • Lorenzo Sonego vs Dominic Thiem
  • Thanasi Kokkinakis (LL) vs Zizou Bergs (WC)
  • Yosuke Watanuki (Q) vs Benoit Paire (Q)
  • Marcos Giron vs Cristian Garin (Q)

What do you guys consider the Miami Open Draw? Will Alcaraz full the Sunshine Double? Let me know within the feedback.
