Masters Miami 2017: March 24th ATP Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Stadium (11 a.m. start)

[2] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs. Kevin Anderson (RSA) H2H –  I like Nishikori to win, but if Anderson can push Nishikori off of the baseline, an upset can happen.

[5] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. Dudi Sela (ISR) H2H – Rafa rolls

[9] Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. Guido Pella (ARG) H2H – Dimitrov should win this match, but I don’t see it as a completely straightforward win.

Grandstand

[3] Milos Raonic (CAN) vs. Viktor Troicki (SRB) H2H – Doc vidanya, eh?
