Can Medvedev Bounce Back? Medvedev will aim to respond from his disappointing third-round exit at Indian Wells when he takes to court in Miami. It will be the fourth time the 26-year-old has competed at the event, with his best result coming last season when he reached the quarter-finals. The four-time Masters 1000 champion is searching for his first title of the year.
Tsitsipas Seeking Second Masters 1000 Trophy: Stefanos Tsitsipas will make his fourth appearance in Miami as he bids to win his second Masters 1000 title, having triumphed in Monte-Carlo last year. The Greek has yet to crack the winning code at a tour-level event in 2022, but he reached the championship match in Rotterdam and the semi-finals at the Australian Open and in Acapulco.
Reigning Champion Hurkacz: Hubert Hurkacz broke new ground in Miami last season when he soared to the title as the World No. 37. The Pole defeated Top 10 stars Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev en route to the final, before he overcame #NextGenATP Italian Jannik Sinner. The 25-year-old clinched three tour-level titles and cracked the Top 10 in a strong 2021 and will be aiming to regain his best form in Florida.
Carlos Alcaraz and Sinner are continuing to make waves on Tour after enjoying breakthrough years in 2021. The 18-year-old Alcaraz became the youngest player to win an ATP 500 event when he triumphed in Rio de Janeiro in February and showcased his talent in Indian Wells, where he dismantled Top 20 countryman Roberto Bautista Agut for the loss of just two games.
Sinner has reached quarter-finals at the Australian Open and the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships this season and won all three of his ATP Cup matches in January.
Canadian Charge: Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov have impressed this season, with Auger-Aliassime earning his maiden tour-level title in Rotterdam, before he advanced to the final in Marseille the following week. Shapovalov, who helped guide Canada to the ATP Cup title alongside Auger-Aliassime, upset Alexander Zverev en route to the quarter-finals at the Australian Open and enjoyed a run to the last four in Dubai.
Auger-Aliassime and Shapovalov have fond memories in Miami, having both soared to the semi-finals in 2019 when aged just 18 and 19, respectively.
