ATP Miami Open: Christopher O'Connell vs Jannik Sinner

Jannik Sinner has already suffered an upset defeat to Christopher O'Connell in their only previous meeting.

Sinner was also the No 2 seed in Atalanta in 2021 when O'Connell handed him an unexpected loss.

For Sinner, this match presents an opportunity to level the rivalry and settle a score.

O'Connell also has a victory over a seeded player in the bank after a second round win over Frances Tiafoe but Sinner should have the quality to prevail.


ATP Miami Open: Casper Ruud vs Nicolas Jarry

Casper Ruud is no stranger to incredible tussles with Nicolas Jarry but he holds a 2-1 lead in their head-to-head.

Ruud has made a consistent if unspectacular start to the season but could make a statement in Miami.

With the likes of Sinner and Alcaraz rising to win big titles, Ruud's near misses are amplified.

Ruud looks leaner and meaner this season though, and a big win over Jarry could give him a boost.


ATP Miami Open: Dominik Koepfer vs Daniil Medvedev

Daniil Medvedev holds the clear edge over Dominik Koepfer in every department.

Medvedev leads the head-to-head by 2-0, and is ranked 46 places above the German.

Medvedev is out to defend his Miami Open title and achieve something he has never done in winning the same title twice.

Koepfer has claimed three good wins this tournament, but Medvedev represents a significant step up in quality.


ATP Miami Open: Carlos Alcaraz vs Lorenzo Musetti

Carlos Alcaraz has beaten Lorenzo Musetti twice on the ATP Tour and once at a Challenger event.

Alcaraz has hit top form again after a slow start to the season and stays on course to join an elite group of players who have won the Sunshine Double.

Musetti can call on a previous win over Alcaraz, but their most recent clash was one-sided.

Alcaraz made quick work of Musetti in Beijing late last year and could do the same in Miami.


ATP Miami Open: Grigor Dimitrov vs Hubert Hurkacz

Grigor Dimitrov has quite the record against Hubert Hurkacz, and their last 16 meeting gives the Bulgarian a chance to make it 5-0.

Dimitrov has secured several wins over Hurkacz when the Pole has held a superior ranking.

Dimitrov has made a potent start to the year and could make further progress to a top-ten return with a last-eight appearance.

After a dominant win last time out, Dimitrov looks like the man to back here.


ATP Miami Open: Alex De Minaur vs Fabian Marozsan

Alex De Minaur has enjoyed a stellar start to the season but cannot take his eye off Fabian Marozsan.

Marozsan upset De Minaur when they met at the Shanghai Masters and could reach a Masters quarter-final with another big upset.

It will be an upset if Maroszan comes out on top in this meeting too considering De Minaur's drive into the top ten.

De Minaur already has 19 match wins to his name this season and could make Maroszan No 20.


WTA Miami Open: Victoria Azarenka vs Yulia Putintseva

Yulia Putintseva has put together a great run in Miami but will be tested by a meeting with the former world No 1.

Azarenka has also beaten Putintseva in both of their previous singles meetings.

However the most recent of those matches came over two years ago.

Putintseva might not be an ascendant young star but she has the quality to pull off a quarter-final upset.


WTA Miami Open: Maria Sakkari vs Elena Rybakina

Maria Sakkari is also well-placed for a big upset win over Elena Rybakina.

Sakkari has made a strong start to the 2024 campaign and has been playing at a consistently high level.

Rybakina has been brilliant at her best but has also suffered a few blips in performance and injury worries.

Sakkari can level up the rivalry and comes into the match off the back of a walkover which leaves her fresh while Rybakina has already clocked six hours on court to come through three tough matches.
