ATP Miami Open: Marton Fucsovics vs Daniil Medvedev

Daniil Medvedev leads the head-to-head between himself and Marton Fucsovics handsomely.

Medvedev already has 14 match wins to his name this season on hard courts and is seeded third in Miami.

Fucsovics' only win over Medvedev came on clay at the 2019 French Open.

It's hard to see Fucsovics getting past Medvedev in the form that he is in right now.

 

ATP Miami Open: Daniel Evans vs Christopher Eubanks

American Christopher Eubanks tackles a tough opener when he faces Dan Evans.

Evans and Eubanks head into this match with identical 3-6 season win-loss records.

These two are very closely matched and this match is tough to call.

A confidence-boosting win over Lorenzo Sonego in the first round could give the Brit an edge with Eubanks coming in cold and on a four-match losing streak.

 

ATP Miami Open: Martin Landaluce vs Ben Shelton

Ben Shelton gets the rare experience of facing a younger player when he takes on teenager Martin Landaluce.

The 18-year-old world number 360 upset Spanish compatriot Jaume Munar in the first round to earn this clash with the American.

Shelton has had to wait until Saturday to start his tournament and last played 11 days ago when he lost in the Indian Wells last eight.

Still, the top 20 star should have the beating of the largely baseline-bound Landaluce.

 

ATP Miami Open: Carlos Alcaraz vs Roberto Carballes Baena

The Spanish contingent will get thinner in Miami as Carlos Alcaraz takes on Roberto Carballes Baena in his first match.

Alcaraz is on track to achieve the Sunshine Double, having won Indian Wells last week, but this is still a tricky opener.

If he plays positively Alcaraz should overwhelm his compatriot fairly quickly.

This will be the first meeting between the countrymen in ATP Tour action.

 

WTA Miami Open: Maria Timofeeva vs Linda Noskova

Maria Timofeeva and Linda Noskova will also share the court for the first time when they meet in the round of 64 of the Miami Open.

Noskova was last in action when she lost to Iga Swiatek on 10 March at Indian Wells.

Noskova's seeding earned her a bye but that reward seems to come with an edge for her opponent.

Timofeeva came through qualifying and has won three matches in Miami to reach this stage, despite her number 99 ranking she is well placed to pull off an upset.

 

WTA Miami Open: Katie Boulter vs Beatriz Haddad Maia

Katie Boulter is another potential giant killer as she faces Beatriz Haddad Maia.

Haddad Maia faces Boulter in a Round of 32 clash scheduled on the same night as Round of 64 clashes.

Boulter has been in better form in recent weeks than the Brazilian, who fell short when the players met for the first time in San Diego last month.

With that win in the bank Boulter should have a plan to progress to the last 16.

 

WTA Miami Open: Taylor Townsend vs Elena Rybakina

Taylor Townsend is on a spirited run in Miami, having come through qualifying and first and second round matches to reach this stage.

Elena Rybakina battled past Clara Tauson in her opener to secure this tie.

Rybakina should progress despite Townsend's spirit and the crowd's backing.

This will be the first singles meeting between these two players on the WTA Tour.

 

WTA Miami Open: Anhelina Kalinina vs Aryna Sabalenka

Anhelina Kalinina will contend with the tiger's roar of Aryna Sabalenka for the first time when they contend a Round of 32 match at the Miami Open.

Sabalenka eased past former world No 2 Paula Badosa in a fashion that suggests a long run in Miami.

For Kalinina, a win over Sabalenka would be the biggest of her career to date.

Sabalenka needs a strong showing in Miami to keep Indian Wells champion and world No 1 Iga Swiatek under some pressure.
