From March 21st to April 3rd, there is an annual Tennis tournament held in Key Biscayne, Florida, which is known as one of the biggest tournaments that are joint male and female. It includes some of the biggest names in current tennis such as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and current world number 1, Novak Djokovic. Miami Open is also known to bring attention to stars such as Dominic Thiem, an Australian hotshot who lost to Djokovic in the Round of 16, and recent world number 15 David Goffin of Belgium.
There are a few players who have been doing quite well during this year. Novak Djokovic won both the Australian Open and last week’s BNP Paribas Open. Roger Federer, who is known to be the greatest player of all time, unfortunately, is out of the tournament due to a stomach virus. Rafael Nadal is also out due to fatigue from the harsh hot and humid conditions.
As of now, 2014 US open Finalist Kei Nishikori is going to play against world number 16, Gael Monfils. They are both incredible players with many talents, but I think Gael Monfils is going to win because he recently beat Grigor Dimitrov who defeated world number 2, Andy Murray.
Also, last week’s finalist Milos Raonic and another up and coming Australian Nick Kyrgois are going to face in the quarterfinals. They both have very similar play styles, and it is tough to predict who will win, but I think that Raonic will win because he is more experienced and a more focused tennis player.
As for the first semifinal match between Novak Djokovic and David Goffin, it is almost a no-brainer that Djokovic will win. He has been winning every single tournament that he dares to put his name into. Even if he doesn’t win, he has constantly been in the topeight of every Grand Slam tournament he has entered since the 2009 Wimbledon.
All in all, I think Novak Djokovic will win the Miami Open and enter the upcoming clay court season with a tremendous amount of confidence and may end up winning his first French Open!
