Masters Miami 2017: March 23rd ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

ORDER OF PLAY – THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 2017

STADIUM start 11:00 am

ATP – M. Granollers (ESP) vs B. Coric (CRO) – This is a 50-50 match in my view, but historically I think the court speed will slightly favor Granollers.

ATP – [Q] F. Tiafoe (USA) vs K. Kravchuk (RUS) – A home court edge and match toughness could make the difference for the qualifier.

Not Before 9:00 pm

ATP – [WC] T. Bellucci (BRA) vs S. Robert (FRA) – Bom Dia!

GRANDSTAND start 11:00 am

ATP – N. Basilashvili (GEO) vs [PR] T. Robredo (ESP) – Robredo’s fitness and preparation have always been exemplary.  That bodes well for his attempt at coming back from a lengthy injury. 

ATP – K. Khachanov (RUS) vs D. Schwartzman (ARG) 

ATP – B. Tomic (AUS) vs [Q] M. Kukushkin (KAZ) – This is an intriguing match.  I have no idea who will win, but Tomic seems due for some decent results.

Not Before 5:00 pm

ATP – A. Dolgopolov (UKR) vs M. Jaziri (TUN) – Dolgopolov could win, but I never know what to expect from him.  Jaziri played well at Indian Wells so he seems likely to play well here too.

COURT 1 start 11:00 am

ATP – A. Mannarino (FRA) vs [Q] B. Becker (GER) – Does the veteran (he beat Agassi in 2005 and is still out there on tour) have a win or two in him for this event?

ATP – G. Elias (POR) vs H. Zeballos (ARG)

COURT 2 start 11:00 am

ATP – D. Dzumhur (BIH) vs H. Chung (KOR) 

ATP – [WC] A. Rublev (RUS) vs F. Mayer (GER) 

COURT 7 start 11:00 am

ATP – [WC] C. Ruud (NOR) vs Y. Lu (TPE) – No idea on this one

ATP – [Q] D. King (BAR) vs [Q] L. Lacko (SVK) – I great chance for each qualifier to face another player who had to qualify.  

COURT 8 start 11:00 am

ATP – [Q] R. Albot (MDA) vs A. Seppi (ITA) – Seppi seems to always win a few rounds.

ATP – D. Istomin (UZB) vs A. Kuznetsov (RUS) – This is another 50-50ish match in my mind.
