The draw for the Miami Open has been released and Rafael Nadal is the second seed in the absence of Roger Federer, who has opted to skip the tournament this year.
Our champ has a bye in the first round. In the second round he will play either Nicolas Almagro of Spain or Sergiy Stakhovsky of Ukraine.
If the men play to seed the quarter-final line up will be:
- Novak Djokovic vs. David Ferrer
- Kei Nishikori vs. Milos Raonic
- Stan Wawrinka vs. Andy Murray
- Rafael Nadal vs. Tomas Berdych
In Rafa’s four trips to the final, he has lost to Djokovic (2014, 2011), Davydenko (2008) and Federer (2005). Miami is one of just three Masters trophies missing from Rafa’s mantle (Paris, Shanghai).
