Top Names Nadal, Djokovic, Federer and Defending Champ Roddick Lead Miami Field, But Who’ll Win?

With Roger Federer now in the three hole in the latest ATP Rankings, the big drama with the Miami draw today was in what half the Swiss would fall. And is it turns out Federer landed in the Rafael Nadal half leaving the red-hot Novak Djokovic paired with Robin Soderling and in his quarter Andy Murray.

Overall, I think the draw came out pretty fair. With the exception of Soderling who drew Juan Martin Del Potro in his 16th, things came out even;y distributed.

Nadal opens with either Kei Nishikori or Jeremy Chardy and then Juan Ignacio Chela. In the fourth round he’ll be tested by either JW Tsonga or Alexandr Dolgopov before a showdown with Berdych in the quarters. Berdych, the 2010 runner-up, has a great draw out the quarterfinals with only Ernests Gulbis and maybe Ivo Karlovic to get past. And if Berdych is playing like he did a year ago when he upset Federer, he could do it this time to Nadal.

Federer also appears to have a cozy section. The two-time champion will have Fabio Fognini in his opener then Juan Monaco before Marcos Baghdatis or Mikhail Youzhny – hard to pick between those two. Federer may then collide in the fourth round with defending champion Andy Roddick, who may have his hands full trying to beat Gilles Simon to get there. That Simon v. Roddick clash could be quite a dandy a week from today.

In the bottom half, as I said Soderling will be under the gun immediately in his opener against Ivan Dodig who I think beats Andrey Golubev in one of the better first round matches. From there I think he does get Juan Martin Del Potro in the third round, and I like Delpo there. I think DelPo comes out to the quarters to play David Ferrer. To get there, Ferrer will likely have to go through Milos Raonic, who is seeded for the first time at a Tennis Masters, then Stan Wawrinka. A deeper inspection reveals that quarter is the most wide open with Delpo, Soderling, Wawrinka, Ferrer or even Raonic coming out. But I think it will be Delpo – Miami, afterall, is a very South American friendly tour event.

In the final quarter, I didn’t think Djokovic would win Miami but looking at his draw it’s hard to see him losing early. He’ll open with Denis Istomin to then play Tomaz Bellucci and followed by either Viktor Troicki or Sam Querrey. If it’s Troicki maybe he gives his countryman a win? In the quarters I’ll pick Murray to get there but I’ll do it cautiously. Murray spends a lot of time in Miami so that should spark him to some success. But the Scot has lost seven straight sets and is in rather precarious tailspin right now. If he can beat John Isner in the third round that should do wonders. He’ll have Fernando Verdasco perhaps in the fourth before an Australian Open rematch with Djokovic.

My early semifinal picks looks like Nadal v. Federer, Del Potro v. Djokovic and right now I’m picking Nadal to beat Del Potro in the final and win his first career Miami title.

The quarterfinals by seeding look like: 1 Nadal v. 7 Berdych, 3 Federer v. 8 Roddick, 8 Ferrer v. 4 Soderling, 5 Murray v. 2 Djokovic.
The semifinals by seeding: 1 Nadal v. 3 Federer, 4 Soderling v. 2 Djokovic.

Among the best of the first rounders I like Fognini v. Stepanek, Haase v. Tipsarevic, Karlovic v. Mayer, Berankis v. F. Lopez, Chardy v. Nishikori and as I mentioned Gulubev v. Dodig.

The tournament has already released a prelimanary schedule with Del Potro playing Wednesday afternoon, Murray on Friday afternoon and Djokovic Friday night.

Matches begin on Wednesday with Tennis Channel coverage I believe starting this weekend. ESPN2 takes over TV coverage next Wednesday.

stu Says:

This is such a hard draw to predict! Interesting match-ups starting in 2 and throughout the draw! It’s a cr@pshoot, I just went with my gut. And I’ve been partial to the Frenchmen.

Oh, and I think Djokovic finally loses to a good friend. Can’t decide whether that friend is Viktor, AndyM or Rafa!


Kimberly Says:

Stu, I’m thinking I should just hit delete and start over. Ive made such a mess of this draw!


Kimberly Says:

For all tennis xers and friends and or significant others of tennis xers join our draw challenge…..go to challenge.Atpworldtour.com join group tennisxfans it is a public group anyone can join. Lots of fun. Skeezer won Indian wells!


jane Says:

When do Miami picks have to be finalized? I did mine quickly, very unsure about it all!


skeezerweezer Says:

Sean,

Great write and couldn’t agree more, great draw. Finally, some comp. on all sides of the draw, not like the “cakewalk” draws of past. Bring on Miami and Kimberly has got to like this from a fan view if you there LIVE., so many great matches to watch!

@kimberly…same here….I picked initially but will take a fresh look at it tomorrow…..too many options :) or :(


skeezerweezer Says:

jane..

As of now (9;02PST) it says 34 hrs…so go figger..:)


dari Says:

Wow, time flew I have to jump on this quick. And I may have a joiner, we will see!


Gannu Says:

signs of times… no one wants to pick fed for anything these days!!!!… At this rate people will not even start picking up Federer to reach Qtrs and Semis.. Hurts to see the twilight of such a champion..and he is such a big denial.. dont understand that.. He should just win Wimbledon and retire immediately with grace rather than limping throughout the rest of his career…


Polo Says:

It used to be that Federer only had to worry about Nadal. Take Nadal out and Fed’s confidence grows and with his game, the tournament was his. Then other players started to beat him in big events, Soderling, Berdych, now Djokovic. That is why is not a sure thing anymore. But he is still good (not just not as good or dominating as before). Therefore, if he wants to continue to play, he should. Every now and then he can still eke out a brilliant play. He can still win another major title or two. Just not as easily as he did before. Watching him make a spectacular every now and then still amazes and amuses me. Just like Gasquet, beautiful to watch even if I know he may never win anything of significance.


stu Says:

Kimberly, will you be watching the exhibition football match to raise money for Japan, while you are in Miami?

Is anyone else going to Miami?


Dory Says:

“Soderling who drew Juan Martin Del Potro in his 16th” what does “in his 16th” mean? Round of 16. If they meet, they’d meet in the 3rd round. I’m hoping to see a JMDP vs Djokovic semi finally.


Dory Says:

Btw Nadal defeated Djokovic in that exho. 7-6 (7/5) 6-3. Seems like Nole isn’t serious about Miami. And he’s playing doubles there as well with Murray? I hope he doesn’t overexhaust himself to the point of losing in singles just because he’s had a good start. That would make me happy. He could have rested for 2 days.


grendel Says:

http://eurosport.yahoo.com/21032011/58/nadal-feeling-better.html

Doesn’t need too much reading between the lines to see that Nadal will fancy himself to win Miami. The boy’s hungry. Would you really want to bet against him?

Simon’s got to beat Harrison before he can play Roddick.


Dory Says:

Sorry I meant that would make me UNHAPPY.


stu Says:

Dory, he seems to be feeling healthy though. I mean, of his 20 matches over 3 months, I’d say a maximum of 5 were competitive. I agree, he need not play dubs (probably a commitment he made to Muzz at the AO), but as someone mentioned somewhere, the top players are probably playing more doubles this year in prep for the 2012 Olympics…They get a week off between Miami and Monte Carlo.

Ideally, I would like to see him sweep the HC events and take the pressure off himself in Monte Carlo. Then he can come back rejuvenated for the rest of the clay season…


The fighter Says:

Rafa has beaten Nole 7-6, 6-3 in Bogota……congrats to him…


Tennis Vagabond Says:

What an amzing draw, so many things to learn here: Who is the #2 hardcourt player right now, Rafa or Rog? We’ll find out!
Is DelPo a GS contender? We’ll find out vs Soderling!
How deep into the top ten can Raonic contend? We’ll find out vs Ferrer!
Has Nole established himself as a level above Murray? We may find out in the quarters.

What great storylines here.
In my draw challenge I picked Rog over Rafa, Murray over Delpo, and ROg to win. I think Rog and Andy are due.


Polo Says:

The only time I will pick Roger over Nadal is on grass and that is with some trepidation. That remains the only surface where I would say Roger remains the favorite (arguably).


Skeezerweezer Says:

Fighter,

It was an exho….just fyi :)

TV,

Agreed a lot of interesting stuff in this draw, bring it!


nitro Says:

Miami title goes to Nadal 2011. He´ll practice his first serve and will want to get his revenge on Djokovic.


Daniel Says:

Polo, what about Indoor hard, where Fed has perfect 3-0 lead?!

Right now Djoko is clearly n. 1 on hard. Fed n.2 with this year showings and Last yer WTF and Nadal n.3 due to WTF runner up and US Open. Plus the last two titles match on hard Nadal lost to Fed and Djoko. Nadal’s last 2 hard titles are Tokyo and US Open since IW 2009, 2 titles in two years, even with him in his glory days.
We now that once he enters Monte Carlo and smells the dirty he will be a full force again. The question is, which of the 4 (3 masters and RG) will he surrender, if he doens’t win all again?! Another factor, this year Barcelona is not close to the masters, NAdal can play 3 masters, BArcelona and RG, which can hurt his RG if he drains himself in long matches. But if he wins easily, he can win all of them, unless injury steps in.


Daniel Says:

Tennis Vagabond, my last picks are exactly like yours.
I put Murray beating Djoko, more on Djoko geting mentally tired by than, but game wise I can even think of it with Murray’s play right now. I am giving him a leap of faith, he likes Miami and is about time for him to show he is alive.


jane Says:

I picked Murray for the same reasons Daniel – did you guys join the TX group? I picked Rafa over Fed but I am unsure of that one. It’s 50/50 based on some of Fed’s play versus Nole. Maybe it depends how fast the court is, and skeeze posted that it’s slower, so then I think that would favour Rafa.


Tennis Vagabond Says:

Daniel- if we didn’t pick upsets, what would be the point in filling out the draw, right?

Tennis is a pretty poorly run sport in my opinion, but they’ve done a great job re-invigorating the Masters events which are really mini-Slams now, except with all the flabby first round loser matches cut out.


dari Says:

more of a “heart-biased” picking this time. stuck on dolgo v tsonga… and a couple others. this one is tough. petzschner v melzer?!??!? haha, i know those early rounds aren’t as important but there is plenty of stumpers here this time.


The fighter Says:

Skeeze
i knw bt wats ur problm if i say congrats to rafa?


skeezerweezer Says:

fighter,

no prob I just didn’t know if you knew it was an exho….vamos rafa!


skeezerweezer Says:

This will be an interesting tourney for Rafa. The slow court will be huge for him, so to me he is the fav on that. But he has some decent early rd matchups for once, so it will be fun to see. Novak is iffy, and agree with most that he might run out of gas….but who knows? Murray should be fresh, Delpo is getting back in fine fashion.

My hardest decsions are in the Roddick qtr, with Simon, Cilic, tipsy and gang. Help?

Fed? Well…vamos Fed!


Tennis Vagabond Says:

Remember that Key Biscayne is where Rafa first came out as more-than-a-clay-monster with that epic finals loss to Fed. He likes this tournament. That will be a telling match (should they both get there). I also think the DelPotro Soderling match is one with implications for the rest of the year.


Tennis Vagabond Says:

Oh yes, Key Biscayne was also the tournament where underground legend Bacon O’Rourke made his one and only pro appearance! Learn more about Bacon and the mythic underground tennis caravan at http://www.tennisvagabond.com!


stu Says:

Daniel and Murray, I have Djoko losing to Murray for exactly the same reasons. And also because ND tends to feel a great deal of empathy for AM and may be less inclined to fight tooth and nail for a win.

I guess now that we’re all predicting that Nole will lose that match, he will win :)


skeezerweezer Says:

“After Sunday’s final, Djokovic described his good friend Nadal as the greatest player of all time, lavish praise which put a broad smile on the Spaniard’s face.

“Well, we have a very good relationship,” Nadal said. “I am happy about what he said, and I say thank you to Novak.

“But it’s not true, so … ,” he added, before pausing to laugh. “It’s stupid. Thanks a lot to him for his words, but …”

Polo Says:

Daniel,

Federer has been so on and off in his game nowadays that I can’t put all my eggs in his basket anymore regardless of the surface. Because of his age, I don’t think he is still capable of back to back great matches against the top guys. I don’t see him beating Nadal and Djokovic in two consecutive matches anymore. And before them, there are other guys who can trip him…like Del Potro (who has been showing good recovery in both his form and his confidence), Murray (if he gets his head back), Sederling, Berdych. The list of Fed trippers has been steadily getting longer.


Tennis Vagabond Says:

Polo, its very true but would you be shocked if any of those guys beat Nadal or Nole (excepting Nadal on clay)? I wouldn’t. Well, except Berdych. I don’t think he’s in that circle.


Polo Says:

Ok, I will take Berdych off.


Polo Says:

Tennis Vagabond,

I get your point. If any of those guys take out either Nadal or Djokovic, Federer’ chances of winning increases exponentially. I agree.


dari Says:

thats a funny quote from rafa, skeezer!


skeezerweezer Says:

Well no matter which way I do it I have a Fedal semi….is that a good thing?


dari Says:

my bracket is done… for now. i still have 19 hours 30 to make some changes. this one was tough, seriously. murray delpo quarterfinal was liking picking your favorite child!


blank Says:

skeeze,
It becomes a good thing only if you pick Fed to win the whole thing ;-)


The fighter Says:

i knew dat….nway no prblm……….jst trying to cheer myself up……he he…..


Daniel Says:

Yes jane, I joinned te grito: dcinefilo (as for cinephile) is my avatar. Told ya I am a movie freak!


Daniel Says:

We could very well have Nadal, Fed, Djoko and Delpo in the semis again. I don’t think I have ever saw this in back to back tennis tourneys. Did it happened in the pass?!


margot Says:

best to leave as late as poss. till the qualifiers are through but am stumped as to what time it is in ATP Challenge bracket Land as opposed to GMT ;)


Kimberly Says:

right now i still have nadal and murray in the final. My husband (who hates rafa) thinks rafa is seriously pissed and will come to miami and open up a can of whoop ass. I think he could suffer a similar mishap like last year, get even more pissed, and open it up in MC, kind of like last year. There always seems to be some odd symetry in tennis.

However, does that leave me with Andy Murray? That is a very very risky pick.

If I was smart I would put Fed and Djoker in the final. That’s probably what most people have and then my score relative to others wouldn’t suffer as much if I’m wrong.

I think I had Soderling take out Delpo. I just haven’t seen any evidence that Delpo can beat a top tenner. Not even sure he’ll make it past Kohlschreiber.


jane Says:

Yay Daniel – awesome that you joined! Cinephile. :)


scineram Says:

Very exciting season this looks so far. And this draw in insanely interesting. I would love if Dolgopolov, Tsonga or Almagro took out Rafa, so Rog can win this thing. Say, against MAndy or Soda.

And I joined too.


Nina Says:

Very exciting draw for a change! I want Nole or Muzza to win this!


Kimberly Says:

welcome daniel!

everyone else, if there is ever a fun draw to pick this is it

challenge.atpworldtour.com join tennisxfans!


contador Says:

hey scineram-

repeating a message i left to you on the bracket.

is that suicide draw on for masters 1000? and if so, could you post the link again? thanks.


Kimmi Says:

Delpo is due to beat a top 10 player. soderling is a good top 10 to start with..go for it delpo.


Kimmi Says:

grigor to the main draw, who does he play in the first round? I really hope he wins a match!


Kimmi Says:

I hope they add the qualis before they close the bracket challenge. Sure grigor will win a match…he is due for another win..


contador Says:

can’t wait to see where grigor is placed! maybe he’ll get lucky this time kimmi and win one. only 2 more atp qualie matches to get done and over atm. weird score on dancevic -donald young match.

also had a change of mind…and completely gave my bracket a makeover, except ultimate winner.

soda’s picture w/ his gf on atp website is too cute.

absolutely do not hate rafa like kaiser at all. but i agree rafa’s gonna open a can of whup-ass. federer might feel like opening same but … can he take down a po’d rafa? nah…lol…rafa will be funny to watch in miami! buzz sawing his way thru the draw…..hahhaha


Carol Says:

The draw is indeed very exciting and there’s room for many upsets. My fiance feels, (i think he’s hoping) that Rafa will be hungry to mow down everyone in his path. It will be fun to watch.

Don’t think Soderling will be very effective at Miami though. DelPotro is very iffy with his wrist and fitness problems, as it’s hot in Miami and he has a tendency to wilt in the heat. Same goes for others who can’t handle the heat unless they get night matches. Don’t see that happening though. The US tourneys tend to feature the US players at night. I’m an American and even though none of the present crop of US players are my Nos.1 and 2 faves, I’d like for them to do well on their home turf. Not much fun losing at home for any player.


grendel Says:

“And also because ND tends to feel a great deal of empathy for AM and may be less inclined to fight tooth and nail for a win.” (Stu).

I’m really not sure of this. Some people claim that players tend to fight harder than ever against close friends or relatives,where there’s generally been a pretty spicy history of rivalry going on. It’s a bit like: if someone’s going to sleep with the girl you’re in love with, although you’re not going to be too elated who ever does it, it’s somehow worse when it’s someone you are close to. That said, Djokovic is due for a fall.

Kimmi – why do you say Dimitrov is in the main draw? He’s won the first round in qualies, next has to beat Massu and if he manages that, the winner of Schuettler/Zemlja. Of course, I hope he gets there and, like you and Conty, greatly hope he can win a match. If the draw is kind, maybe two…


Carol Says:

“And also because ND tends to feel a great deal of empathy for AM and may be less inclined to fight tooth and nail for a win.” Stu.

If I were a Murray fan I would find this very offensive. Are you saying that the times Murray beat Djokovic was due to Djokovic feeling sorry for Murray so he didn’t fight for the win? Why didn’t he do that at the AO? This Djkovic guy must be very big-hearted.


Carol Says:

“That said, Djokovic is due for a fall.”

Nothing lasts forever; I think it will happen in Miami, but the excuse will be the Bogota Exho, which has been mentioned already, even though he will have 4 days before he next plays.


Kimmi Says:

grendel – You have missed a round my friend. dimitrov beat massu 6-2 6-3 today, massu was his final quali round..he is in the main draw now, who does he play in the main draw? this is what i want to know..

Schuettler and zemlja is another section in which shuettler won, he is in the main draw as well…quali draw can be a little confusing, after studying few quali draw i have the hang of it now. they normally don’t play more that 2 matches for ATP tournaments in order to qualify, grand slam is three matches i think.


grendel Says:

thanks for the correction, Kimmi. Good news about Dimitrov. Well, if Harrison can cause such waves, why not Dimitrov?


jane Says:

grendel, i see what you mean about fighting friends harder, though it doesn’t seem to always apply when compatriates play against one another. Different dynamic there i guess.

Djoko doesn’t need an excuse if he loses earlier in Miami. He has the longest winning streak to start the season since Lendl in ’86. So if he loses, no biggie. He has virtually no points to defend either.

Delpo played pretty awesomely here, the year before last, when he beat Rafa. I wonder if he can duplicate that?

I feel like Muzza is due for a good run.


Kimmi Says:

What was lendl streak jane?


grendel Says:

“i see what you mean about fighting friends harder, though it doesn’t seem to always apply when compatriates play against one another”

Hah, it did when Henman and Rusedski played, I can tell you! But then, of course, Rusedski wasn’t really British…..


jane Says:

^ Kimmi, I think it was 25 or 26.

grendel, Rudeski was a fake compatriate, haha. j/k.


jane Says:

Didn’t mean to call him Rude(ski) either. Rusedski, there.


jane Says:

He is more a ruse than a rude boy.


Oui Says:

People! Be aware that old Von is back as Carol (with a financee no less!)”Carol” claims she has been reading the forum for eighteen months. It makes sense since she can then “know” people and not screw up. She also pretends to be this new Cindy Brady. Remember, Cindy_Brady uses the underscore. It is just Von struggling to find a way to express herself.


Carol Says:

funny as hell. I know about you too goat galz. invite you to the wedding in June in Malibu, Ca. And, yes, I do have a fiance, not a financee. I’ll

You’re lucky I’m not Von. It was pitiful how you harassed her.


skeezerweezer Says:

jane

“He has the longest winning streak to start the season since Lendl in ‘86.”

nice dig ;)


skeezerweezer Says:

“drama” is back on tennix x, ugh :(


stu Says:

Von, I have said time and again how much I respect Muzz as a player. I have never made excuses for Djoko’s losses to him. So go start brewing trouble elsewhere.


Oui Says:

invite you to the wedding in June in Malibu, Ca. And, yes, I do have a fiance, not a financee.I’ll

When correcting someone don’t make errors yourself. ROFLMAO


Skeezerweezer Says:

scineram,

Good luck with your picks and welcome!


dari Says:

Sometimes I check the paper of a big city that is hosting a big tournament. In Miami herald, small article about one of Rafa’s new marketing gigs
http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/03/22/2128425/bacardi-chooses-nadal-as-ambassador.html
I would listen to Rafa if he said “no mas”


margot Says:

All u unMurray fans picking Andy lol, can’t even see him getting past Verdasco…..and feeling v. disloyal in the process……but hoping 4 egg on face of course…;) still time 2 change, now find out 2pm GMT…oooer…
jane, v. nice article re Andole :)


Kimberly Says:

17 minutes and ive got murray in the winners column


Kimmi Says:

dari – ha-ha i like the caption “champions drink responsibly”


dari Says:

come on, davydenko!


dari Says:

and kudos to the boys, led by novak, on organizing the soccer match against a local team to benefit japan. very nice. no injuries, please!


stu Says:

i can’t get the draw challenge website to work on my mac x-(. i know i have 2 points, but i cant remember my picks so i don’t know which ones i got right!


dari Says:

i think we were the only two with 2 points, stu and i picked dodig and… kukushkin i think


stu Says:

thanks dari…i’m going to be at the bottom of the group soon though, my draw is such a mess!

re. soccer match, shouldn’t Rafa and Nole really be resting whenevr they get a chance? Nole’s running on adrenalin for sure but Rafa really cannot afford to make the same mistakes he has before…


sheila Says:

i am a true federer fan, but realistically he isnt winning like he once did. logically, i’m picking nadal-djokovic final w/nadal winning because nadal will not lose 2x in a row 2 djokovic. lots of people picking djokovic 2take over #1 spot. i totally disagree. nadal will not allow that. also i pick djokovic & nadal 2b in most of the finals of tournaments. i would love 2c roger eek out a wimbledon win, however. i can only hope, but he doesnt seem 2b playing w/the same intensity he once did. hes probably burned out.


jane Says:

scineram – good job that you joined but ya forgot to finish your draw! :) Or did you do that on purpose?


ali Says:

Lover your article. I agree with your analysis. Tennis is getting more exciting. I want Rafa to get this one. Time for Djoker to lose. No way he can surpass Rafa in clay season. Vamos !!


Kimmi Says:

just checking the doubles draw. djoko/murray pairing up. dolgo decides to take a rest but his parter malisse still playing, pairing with jamie murray.

No rafa, no fed, no soda! OK, fed and muzza get it going, surprise everybody please!


Kimmi Says:

scouting for dimitrov in the draw. first match with stakhovsky, not too bad, definitely winnable, monaco waiting in the second round is winnable too..c’mon grigor!

grendel, i agree with you. if harrison can make some noise why not grigor? i think he is one of those late bloomers. he is 19, harrison is 18? grigor has done better than harrison in challenger circut, has been more consistent, so that helps. He is on his highest ranking now.. 71. His problem at the moment is, he has not figured out how to win in the ATP tour…yet!

I think he needs one great run like harrison’s to give him some confidence..hope he gets it soon.


grendel Says:

Kimmi, interesting about Dimitrov’s opponent. Funnily enough, Stakhovsky played Harrison at US Open and won a tight match in 5. First time I’d seen Harrison, and he was very impressive and enjoyable to watch. He might play Simon in Miami, and I look forward to that. I think American tennis will lie on his shoulders for a good long time, and he looks the type who won’t mind that. Not lacking in confidence. Couldn’t help being amused by the breezy way in which he remarked that Federer had played a good match against him.

Dimitrov seems to me quite brittle, and he’ll have to sort that out – but after all, Federer was too at his age! As you say, it’s not a bad draw, although it’s not easy, either. Neither Stakhovsky nor Monaco are pushovers.


van orten Says:

i only want that semi final to happen
go roger go rafa!!!!! i wanna seeeeee u there in f…ing key biscayneeeee yeahhhhhhhhhhh


jane Says:

Awesome photos of Japan Relief Soccer game in Miami – just go to the ATP site and view the gallery: shots of Murray, Nole, Rafa, Hotsauce, F-Lo, Baggy, Troicki, Melzer, Ferrer, Tsonga (who is looking mean and lean – maybe I shouldn’t've picked Dolgo) and more! GOOD JOB TENNIS PLAYERS!
