Live Miami Open on 7: Medvedev decided to reach the top of ATP, Tsitsipas was wary of “Little Nadal”
(Sports news – tennis news) World No. 2 tennis player Daniil Medvedev will face the “phenomenon” of host Jenson Brooksby, while Tsitsipas needs to be especially cautious before the advancement of Carlos Alcaraz.
Daniil Medvedev – Jenson Brooksby: 0:30, March 30, Miami Open 4th round
No. 1 seed Daniil Medvedev will enter the fourth round of the Miami Open and the challenge ahead of him will be the host country’s tennis player Jenson Brooksby. Haven’t had too many difficulties since the day we started the army when we both won slightly after the previous 2 sets Andy Murray and Pedro Martinez, Medvedev still showed the bravery of a leading name at the Masters 1000 event in the US.
Medvedev is aiming to return to the number 1 ATP position
The fact that both Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal did not attend the Miami Open for different reasons made Medvedev even more determined to go deep at this year’s tournament. Remember, if you reach the semi-finals, Medvedev will return to the world No. 1 position of ATP. This means that the number 1 position is only 1 match away from the Russian player and Jenson Brooksby is probably not a big enough obstacle to make it difficult.
However, Brooksby’s achievement of reaching the fourth round of the Miami Open is also remarkable. From an unseeded player, the “phenomenon” of the United States has in turn defeated strong opponents like Nikoloz Basilashvili or Roberto Bautista Agut to have the opportunity to compete with Medvedev.
However, this could be the end point for Brooksby’s journey at this year’s tournament as Medvedev is heavily motivated towards a victory.
Stefanos Tsitsipas – Carlos Alcaraz: 6:00, March 30, Miami Open 4th round
In the match that follows, third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas will face a real challenge in the name of Carlos Alcaraz. The Greek star did not take too much effort to beat the Australian No. 25 seed Alex De Minaur.
However, Carlos Alcaraz will be a different story when the youth and advancement momentum of the Spaniard is extremely impressive.
Tsitsipas must be especially careful against Alcaraz
Notable achievements of Tsitsipas since the beginning of the season are reaching the semi-finals of the Australian Open (losing to Medvedev), the final of the Rotterdam Open (losing to Felix Auger-Aliassime) and the semi-finals of the Mexican Open (losing to Cameron Norrie). Those are not memorable milestones for Tsitsipas because with the position of a world number 5 player, he is expected to be much bigger.
The Miami Open could be an opportunity for Tsitsipas to quench his thirst for titles and kick off a successful season. However, the 23-year-old’s lack of concentration in serving games will remain an inherent weakness that he needs to deeply experience.
In contrast, Carlos Alcaraz is showing dizzying progress in the past 1 year. The player nicknamed “Little Nadal” played more and more bravely and even showed an old age compared to the age of 18. Alcaraz has just had another impressive performance when defeating a seasoned opponent Marin Cilic after only 2 sets.
Therefore, this will be a worthy opponent for Tsitsipas and of course, the Greek player will need to be especially careful if he does not want to repeat the same mistake as at the US Open last year, where Alcaraz shocked with won after 5 dramatic sets.
In the women’s singles, former world No. 1 Naomi Osaka, who is on the verge of revival, will compete with 9th seed Danielle Collins in round 4 (6h, 30/3).
In the late match, 2nd seed Iga Swiatek will meet Czech tennis player Petra Kvitova (March 21, 30), while 5th seed Paula Badosa will face host representative Jessica Pegula.
