ATP Miami Masters Overview
Miami Masters is the logical continuation of the Indian Wells Masters with providing a small break in between for the participants. The number of winning points at stake is the same – 1000. The events differ mainly in climatic conditions and different levels of leisure time and entertainment offered. Miami has plenty of nightlife and entertainment options. Boredom is not an option here. And while this may be a big plus for tourists, some of the young players may be carried away by temptation. Do you remember how the 2015 penthouse party ended for Bernard Tomic? The Australian, age 22, was taken into custody after he refused to turn down the music.
Obviously, habitués of night clubs Benoit Paire, Alexander Dolgopolov, the above mentioned Bernard Tomic will enjoy this place and be short on consistency. In other words, clubs and beaches can make a difference.
Weather and Courts at Miami Masters
The climate in Miami is a bit chiller than in Indian Wells: about 25°С after 30°С in California. It’s also more humid here than it was in Indian Wells: 50% against 20%. But the most important factor is the wind. The expected speed is about 25 kmph and it will affect the play.
As for the surface, it’s quite the same as it was in California so the players won’t need time to adapt and shall be able to show their best.
Novak Djokovic dominated at the event for the last six years triumphing in 2010, 2011, 2014, 2015 and 2016. Before that, Roger Federer won the title in 2005 and 2006. Andy Murray has also once recorded wins in 2009 and 2013.
This year the first place should be even more up for grabs. Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic have withdrawn with injuries. This opens up way for a number of strong competitors.
The retirement of Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will affect the event’s status and attractiveness for fans but it will be more valuable and competitive for the players.
The list of possible finalists is huge. Stan Wawrinka has gained up speed and will be dangerous on court. Nick Kyrgios should also show his best.
The recent Indian Wells champion Roger Federer dislikes the event in Miami and the Swiss needs rest, but if he survives the start of the event, he shall progress further.
Dominic Thiem is rather capable of making to the final. Rafael Nadal will find the event mentally easier with no Djokovic and Murray in draw. Grigor Dimitrov, Lucas Pouille and Jack Sock should also be considered. The Japanese Kei Nishikori is also in good form and the draw is tough for him.
Summing up, about 10 players have a chance to lift the title. We’ll keep watching the event starting from qualifying matches. Stay with us and subscribe to our tips to make profit on betting.
