With Indian Wells coming to a close this weekend it is the turn of the second half of the sunshine double, the Miami Open, to take centre stage.
Join Tennishead as we tell you everything you need to know ahead of the tournament.
When is the Miami Open 2023?
The main draw of the 2023 Miami Open begins with the women’s singles draw on Tuesday 21st March, and finishes on Sunday 2nd April with the men’s singles final and women’s doubles final.
Day sessions begin at 3pm GMT (11am local time), with night sessions starting at 11pm GMT (7pm local time).
Qualifying for the event takes place between Sunday 19th March and Tuesday 21st March.
Players competing at the Miami Open 2023
The singles events are both comprised of 96-player draws, with 32 seeds who all receive a bye to the second round.
In the men’s event Novak Djokovic is currently the top seed on the entry list, but the six-time champion is unlikely to be able to play.
Djokovic, who has won the Miami Open more than any other player in ATP history, was not allowed to play in Indian Wells due to his vaccination status and is likely to suffer the same fate again.
Like at Indian Wells, 2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem receives a wildcard for the Miami Open as he looks to improve on his poor start to 2023.
Here is the full list of men’s seeds for the Miami Open 2023:
|Seed||Name||Current Ranking||Entry Ranking|
|16||Alex de Minaur||18||23|
|23||Roberto Bautista Agut||27||28|
|24||Alejandro Davidovich Fokina||28||31|
|29||Botic van de Zandschulp||33||34|
Iga Swiatek leads the women’s field once again, as she attempts to triumph in Florida for a second year running.
However, the Pole will face tough competition from the Australian Open champion and leading WTA player so far this year, Aryna Sabalenka.
Emma Raducanu makes the main draw of the Miami Open as a wildcard, with the British No.1 looking to continue her momentum from a positive week in Indian Wells.
