The tournament from the Masters 1000 category at Miami, Florida is the last major event before season on clay in Europe and will not lack any major ingredients this year. In the men’s singles competition the main draw has what it takes to delight fans. All the players in the top 10 ATP are there, as well as others who are almost as talented and eager for fame.

Several potential fabulous clashes

The draw offers the possibility of some really exciting matches.

The show will be complete, especially since Roger Federer will also participate. Although he had announced his comeback sometime in April, the Swiss Tennis player seems to have recovered faster from his knee surgery. Thus in the first half of the main draw a potential semifinal could bring Novak Djokovic (ATP No. 1) and Roger Federer (ATP No. 3) face to face. Needless to comment on this possible duel.

In case the two make it to the semifinals, fans will certainly enjoy a true show.

There are even more chances of exciting matches in the other half of the draw. So fans can expect a semifinal between Andy Murray and Nadal, or between Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic (the Indian Wells runner-up last week).

Of course, there may be surprises, given that there are many players who would give anything to make it to the top stages of the competition. Marin Cilic, Jo Wilfried Tsonga, and Nick Kyrgios are some examples of players who can, at any moment, cause problems to the first ranked players.

Djokovic is the defending champion

The Serbian player Novak Djokovic will have a similar mission to the one at Indian Wells – that is defending the title he won in 2015. The leader of the ATP ranking has already won 5 trophies at Key Biscayne and he is definitely going for the 6th. Considering the phenomenal pace of play he so far showed in 2016, there are great chances for him to succeed. Except for abandoning the match against Feliciano Lopez, at the Dubai tournament, the Serbian player is undefeated in the ATP circuit since the match played in London late last year, which he lost to Roger Federer.
