Miami Open draw: Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka on another collision course
If you enjoyed the Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka clash at the Indian Wells Masters, then you will no doubt be delighted to hear we could get a rematch at the Miami Open.
The duo met in the third round of the BNP Paribas Open last week for the 25th meeting of their professional careers and it was 20-time Grand Slam winner Federer who came out on top to take his head-to-head advantage to 22-3.
And they have again been placed in the same quarter of the draw for this week’s ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Florida.
Three-time Miami Open champion Federer is seeded fourth and will open his account against either Matthew Ebden from Australia or a qualifier while Wawrinka could be his third-round opponent.
Top seed and world No 1 Novak Djokovic starts his campaign for a seventh title against either Tomas Berdych or Bernard Tomic.
British No 1 Kyle Edmund could face defending champion and seventh seed John Isner in the quarter-final and if he comes through that, he could meet Djokovic in the quarter-final while new Indian Wells Masters winner Dominic Thiem is a possible semi-final opponent.
With Rafael Nadal absent, Alexander Zverev is seeded second and will face David Ferrer or Sam Querrey first up while Frances Tiafoe could await him in the third round.
Stefanos Tsitsipas and Marin Cilic are also in Zverev’s quarter so they could be quarter-final opponents while Federer is the big fish in terms of a semi-final rival.
