Miami Open: Stefanos Tsitsipas bids for revenge against face US Open foe Carlos Alcaraz

Stefanos Tsitsipas will be aiming to avenge his shock defeat to Carlos Alcaraz at the last US Open when he faces the Spanish teenager in the fourth round of the Miami Open.

The world number five was eliminated in the third round at Flushing Meadows but on Monday, it took him just 90 minutes to defeat Alex de Minaur 6-4 6-3.

In comments carried by the ATP Tour site, the Greek said: "I was able to execute very well today.

"There were a few moments where I had to fight a little bit and show my inner strength. He fought, as always, and I was very patient. I was trying to focus game after game on how I can open the court and come in."

Meanwhile, Alcaraz - who got eliminated in the quarter-finals of the 2021 US Open via retirement in the second set against Felix Auger-Aliassime - earned the right to face Tsitsipas in the next round after overcoming former world number three Marin Cilic.

The 18-year-old - who reached the Indian Wells semi-finals - is in impressive form and is looking to build from his recent win at the Rio Open.

The David Nalbandian-coached Miomir Kecmanovic also advanced with a 7-6 (4) 6-3 win over Sebastian Korda and will play Indian Wells champion Taylor Fritz next.

Defending champion Hubert Hurkacz defeated a stubborn Aslan Karatsev and will compete for a fourth-round spot against South Africa's Lloyd Harris, who also needed three sets in his defeat of Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan.
