If the men play to seed the quarter-final line up will be:

  • Novak Djokovic vs. David Ferrer

  • 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).
