This week we look forward to Miami often called the 5th Slam, but that’s up for debate. I thought the top 5 were a sure thing last week but now I feel like we can talk about the top 3. Soderling gets a tough draw and could face his nemesis Kohlschreiber in round 3.
Federer looks to have a decent draw and Murray has a chance to get his form back and I expect as many surprises as we saw in Indian Wells, but quality will out and I think Rafa’s gonna light it up.
Let’s look at some potential good 1st rounders, upsets and winners:
Top 1st Round Match: Tipsarevic vs. Haase
Dark Horse: Milos Raonic
Defending Champion: Andy Roddick
Injury Watch: Monfils, Nalbandian, Robredo
My pick: Rafael Nadal
