Alcaraz in Top Form

Carlos Alcaraz

Carlos Alcaraz is attempting to add the Miami Open to the title he won at Indian Wells earlier this month. The Spaniard will be only 280 points behind Novak Djokovic if he can win this title for the second time in three years. It's been going well for him so far in Miami with straight sets wins over Roberto Carballes Baena and Gael Monfils. 

His route to the final sees him take on 23rd seed Lorenzo Musetti in the last 16. Potential opponents include fourth seed Alexander Zverev and Jannik Sinner, both of whom he defeated in Indian Wells. Don't forget to read all our in-depth Miami Open betting tips.

Medvedev Out to Retain his Miami Title

tennis player Daniil Medvedev

Not since 2016 has a player retained the men's singles in Miami. That was when Novak Djokovic (absent this year) won a third straight title. Daniil Medvedev is out to repeat that feat and join Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andre Agassi as the only back-to-back winners of this tournament.

Medvedev lost in the final at Indian Wells to Carlos Alcaraz and would love some revenge this week. The world number four has reached at least the semi-final in each of the other three events he's played in 2024. He's yet to drop a set in this tournament and faces unseeded Dominik Koepfer in round four. Casper Ruud is his likely quarter final opponent and then a possible semi-final against Jannik Sinner. To keep up to date with all that's happening in this ATP tournament go to our Miami Open live score.

Another Title for Sinner?

Jannik Sinner of Italy

Jannik Sinner has already won two titles this year and that includes the Australian Open. He's only lost one match in 2024 (to Alcaraz at Indian Wells) and no one has earned more ranking points this year than the Italian. Currently ranked third in the overall rankings, he has an excellent chance of reaching at least the semi-finals.

The second seed will face unseeded opposition in both the last 16 (Christopher O'Connell) and the quarter finals (either Matteo Arnaldi or Tomas Machac). All seems set therefore for a titanic semi-final showdown against Daniil Medvedev and a chance to avenge last year's loss in the Miami final. All the prices can be seen on our Miami Open odds.

Shocks Aplenty in the Women's Singles

France's Caroline Garcia

While the top four seeds remain in the men's draw, it's a different story in the WTA tournament. Top seed Iga Swiatek lost to 14th seeded Ekaterina Alexandrova in round three. Second seed Aryna Sabalenka (who was brave to play after a recent personal tragedy) departed in round two, losing in three sets to Anhelina Kalinina.

Last year's US Open champion Coco Gauff is also out. It was France's Caroline Garcia (above) who beat her in three sets in the third round. It's a welcome return to form for Garcia who hadn't reached a quarter final this year. The 23rd seed has finally achieved that and faces unseeded Danielle Collins in the last eight. If winning, her semi-final opponent will be either fifth seed Jessica Pegula or the conqueror of Iga Swiatek, Ekaterina Alexandrova..

The highest seed remaining is Elena Rybakina who is seeded fourth. A tough match awaits in the last eight against eighth seed Maria Sakkari who recently reached the Indian Wells final. Rybakina was the runner-up to Petra Kvitova in last year's tournament. 

Only one of the remaining players has won this title in the past. That's 27th seed Victoria Azarenka who won in 2009 and 2016. Her opponent in the last eight is unseeded Yulia Putintseva with the winner facing either Rybakina or Sakkari for a place in the final.
