ATP Miami - Monday Schedule: Roger Federer faces Filip Krajinovic

Roger Federer will play once again in the day session at the Miami Open. The Swiss faces Filip Krajinovic on Monday at 1:00 PM for the third time in career. Federer prevailed 6-2 6-1 over the Serb at last year's Indian Wells and in three sets at last year's Basel.

Krajinovic is having a good season so far having reached the Indian Wells fourth round losing to Rafael Nadal and now the Miami third round after prevailing over another Swiss, Stan Wawrinka. Federer went through a slow start against Radu Albot on Saturday.

The night session will once again be headlined by David Ferrer who faces the local hero Frances Tiafoe. It will be the first meeting between them, the Spaniard is coming from his amazing win over Alexander Zverev. On the Grandstand Kevin Anderson faces Joao Sousa for the second time in career.

The Portoguese defeated the South African in 2016 Nice on clay, which is very different than the Miami Open. Denis Shapovalov will play against Andrey Rublev, they already faced each other at the 2017 Next Gen ATP Finals with the Russian prevailing.

Stefanos Tsitsipas will play against Leonardo Mayer. Grigor Dimitrov faced Jordan Thompson, Marco Cecchinato opens his campaign against David Goffin. The Italian took advantage of Damir Dzumhur's retirement in the second round.
