Miami draw: Roger Federer and Juan Martin del Potro in opposite halves
We could have a rematch of the Indian Wells final at the Miami Open as Juan Martin del Potro and Roger Federer are in opposite halves of the draw in Key Biscayne.
Del Potro beat five-times BNP Paribas Open champion Federer in three close sets on Sunday to win his first ATP Masters title, which has resulted in him being seeded fifth for the Miami event.
The top 32 seeds all have byes in the opening round so the Argentine will open his campaign against either Robin Haase or Yuichi Sugita in the second round. He could face third seed Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals while Marin Cilic or David Goffin could be a semi-final opponent.
Meanwhile, former world No 1 Novak Djokovic is seeded ninth and he could face Del Potro in the fourth round.
World No 1 and top seed Federer will face either Guillermo Garcia Lopez or Tennys Sandgren in his first match with Kevin Anderson a projected quarter-final rival and one of Alexander Zverev and Jack Sock will likely await him in the semi-final.
Novak Djokovic ‘met the goal he set out at the beginning of the season’, says his coach
A good season for Novak Djokovic.
