The Miami Open will feature a very intense Sunday day session. The schedule will be opened by the defending champion John Isner opposite to Albert Ramos. Prior to the tournament start, the American admitted that defending the title will be difficult but he still opened his campaign on a good note defeating Lorenzo Sonego 7-6 7-6.
Simona Halep will face Polona Hercog, followed by Novak Djokovic against Federico Delbonis. The last time that the Serb played a third round he lost, in Indian Wells against Philipp Kohlschreiber. But Djokovic now definitely starts as a top favorite against the Argentine.
It will be their first meeting on the tour. The night session will be opened by the defending champion Sloane Stephens and Tatjana Maria. Nick Kyrgios and Dusan Lajovic will close it. The Australian leads head to head meetings 1-0 having won just at last year's Miami 6-4 6-1.
The Serb upset Kei Nishikori in the second round On the Grandstand Milos Raonic faces Kyle Edmund for the second time in career. The Canadian prevailed in a three-set Delray Beach Open quarter-final match, but it will not be easy for him to get another win as Edmund has been playing a good tennis lately having won the Indian Wells Challenger, that marked his comeback to the competition since the Australian Open, and reached the ATP Indian Wells fourth round losing to Roger Federer.
Venus Williams and Karolina Pliskova are also on the schedule. Djokovic won six titles in Miami and he is definitely eager to add another one to the list.
