28    Yoshihito Nishioka                      1144          

29    Miomir Kecmanovic                   1120

30    Maxime Cressy                           1016

 31   Diego Schwartzman                     990

32   Ben Shelton                                   989

After Round 3 the situation is as follows:

Seeded 1-10          -  4  players left

Seeded 11-20       -   1 player left

Seeded 21-32        -  1 player left

Unseeded Players     2 Players left

It is in fact lunacy to even try to make predictions on the match outcomes in Round 4 - there ahs been so many upsets in this tournament and further upsets today is a definite possibility,   4 top 10 seeded players are playing each other namely - 

*   Rublev (6) playing Sinner (10); and

*   Rune (7) playing Fritz (9)

Tsitsipas had some nightmare performances recently and he could lose against Khachanov taking that into account.

The qualification tournaments will start today (24 matches)  and the final 12 matches to finalize the main draw will be played tomorrow .   Normally the main draw will be announced today or at the latest tomorrow.  

The women's draw was yesterday and the men's Main Draw is set for sometime today after which I will be able to update the seedings and the second round matches schedule.

Today is when the real competition in Miami starts.   16 seeded players in the Top Half of the Draw are playing 16 winners in Round 1 of the series.   The remainder of the Round 2 matches are played tomorrow in the Bottom half of the draw where the same situation will be found.   .    That means that over today and tomorrow half of the players in Round 2 will be eliminated.     In Indian Wells near to half of the seeded players lost their matches - will the same happen in Miami?

ROUND 4

Top Half of the Draw

1    Carlos Alcara                            vs         16    Tommy Paul

26    Francisco Cerundolo              vs            Lorenzo Zonego  

2       Stefanos Tsitsipas                  vs           14     Karen Khachanov

Unlike what happened in the Indian Wells tournament there was not many seeded players who lost their matches in the top half of the Draw - matter of fact only 3 seeded players have lost their matches in the Top Half of the Draw - the real upset was the loss of Zverev - who was a total disaster from a performance perspective.   The question is still - will Zverev recover from his injury last year or will he follow the Thiem example.    

With 2 seeded players in the Bottom half of the Draw still to play in Round 3  a total of 8 seeded players out of the 14 already played have lost their matches.    Some of the seeded players were bloody lucky to win.

In Round 3  there also one weird results as well.  With the Top half of the draw completed the fact is that Ruud got beaten by Van der Zandschulp means that the first top 10 seeded player is' gone.  There is only 1 unseeded player left in the said half of the draw left namely Vusuvuori,

It looks like the winner of the Rublev-Sinner match would have a clear run through to the semifinal.   Both are in good form - but Rublev is unpredictable and I think Siner may win that one.  

In respect of the Bottom Half of the Draw the opponent of Medvedev (Molcan) has withdrawn and he is  through to Round 4.  For the rest there were some real surprises like Auger-Aliassime and Hurkacz losing.   As a result Medvedev to proceed playing only against unceded players

1    Carlos Alcaraz                                      vs     9   Taylor Fritz

4      Danill Medvedev                                 vs     Christofer Eubanks  

14    Karen Khachanov                               vs    26   Francisco Cerundolo

It will be extremely difficult t make any predictions on the matches to be played today in round 4 of  the tournaments in some cases even though players won their matches:-

Based on that  -

*   Carlos Alcaraz is the favorite to beat Paul;

*   Rune could beat Fritz;

*    Rublev has a 50% chance of beating Sinner -problem is on form Rublev should win - but we never know Rublev is going to turn up to play;

*    The unseeded Vuusuvuori should beat Van der Zandschulp;

*     Medvedev is playing the unseeded Halys and it should be a walk in the Park for him;

*    The hopeless Mannarino should beat the even worse  Eubanks

*    The unseeded Lorenso Sonego should beat Cerundolo

*     Tsitsipas was very lucky to beat Garin in Round 3 and Kachanov should be able to beat him, but he is always in the same boat as Rublev and it depends which Khachanov turns up to play,

Roob left.

I told you about Rublev - he found ways of losing matches unique to him.   Double faults on break points are his specialty.      

Mar 28, 2023, 22:28

Today he was just outplayed….as the commentator said, in the second set he really didn’t do anything wrong.

SEMIFINALS

1    Carlos Alcaraz                     vs     10   Jannik Sinner

4     Danill Medvedev                vs    14    Karen Khachanov  

Mar 31, 2023, 00:29

FINAL

4     Danill Medvedev               vs           10   Jannik Sinner  

Mar 31, 2023, 00:29

I watched the match between Alcaraz and Fritz and the way Alcaraz demolished Fritz indicate that he would beat Sinner as well.    The bookmakers agreed with that comment as well.   The same applies to the other semi as well - although not as clear as the Alcaraz- Sinner match.   it is quite likely that there may be another Alcaraz-Medvedev final looming.

Congrats to Medvedev un winning his 4th tournament this year.
