Dominic Thiem exceeded expectations and defied the odds to overcome Roger Federer in three pulsating sets in the final of the first Masters 1000 of 2019. Could another surprise winner be in store in the Hard Rock Stadium, the new home of Miami Open?
Novak Djokovic's eyebrow-raising loss to Philipp Kohlschreiber should not be cause for concern. The Serb labeled that loss as "one of those days" and vowed to bounce back at the Miami Open. Djokovic is currently tied with American Andre Agassi with six Miami Open titles, a record at the tournament. The World No.1 has won the "sunshine double" on four different occasions. In spite of losing at Indian Wells, he is still firmly the clear favorite heading to the second stop of the March Masters.
Roger Federer will be the fourth seed following Rafael Nadal's withdrawal. Federer suffered a shocking loss in his last outing in Key Biscayne, falling to then World No.175 Thanasi Kokkinakis in the second round. He will be hoping for a change of fortune in Miami Gardens as he chases his fourth Miami Open title. With Rafael Nadal nursing a knee injury, and Andy Murray just recovering from hip surgery, the famous Big Four is now a Big Two.
