The match was officially postponed until Wednesday and will not be played before 3 p.m. ET.With No. 1 Novak Djokovic losing to No. 22 Roberto Bautista Agut earlier Tuesday, Federer is the highest remaining seed in the tournament. Prior to Miami, Federer fell to Dominic Thiem in the finals of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, on March 17.
Coming in, Federer held a 2-0 career head-to-head record over the 23-year-old Russian. Both matchups came last year.
Seeded no.4, Roger had an uncertain start of his Miami Open campaign after he edged Radu Albot in the 2nd round in 3 sets (4-6 7-5 6-3). The Swiss had a much better performance in the 3rd round against Filip Krajinovic after he defeated the Serbian 7-5 6-3 playing excellent tennis.
“I’m looking forward to the game. I’m very impressed with his progress. I must say the last year has been unbelievable for him… Very impressive.”
Tuesday features a mouth-watering roster of matches at the Miami Open presented by Itau, with all fourth-round clashes taking place at Hard Rock Stadium.
Top seed Novak Djokovic faces a stern test against No. 22 seed Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain. Although the Serbian leads their FedEx ATP Head2Head rivalry 7-2, Bautista Agut won their most recent clash this January at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open and has prevailed in their past two hard-court matches. The 30-year-old has been in fine form this season, taking the title in Doha (d. Berdych) and reaching his first Grand Slam quarter-final at the Australian Open (l. To Tsitsipas).
Djokovic has been made to work in his first two matches this fortnight. The six-time Miami champion was pushed to a first-set tie-break against Bernard Tomic and dropped a set against Federico Delbonis. But the World No. 1 is at his best in the later stages of tournaments and will be eager to avenge his most recent loss to Bautista Agut.
Fourth seed Roger Federer headlines the night session against No. 13 seed Daniil Medvedev of Russia. The Swiss improved his form considerably in his third-round win on Monday, firing 35 winners to defeat Filip Krajinovic. Federer leads his FedEx ATP Head2Head series against Medvedev 2-0, with both wins coming last October at the Rolex Shanghai Masters and Swiss Indoors Basel.
Medvedev stretched Federer to three sets in Shanghai and has remained solid in his results.
The Russian prevailed last month at the Sofia Open (d. Fucsovics) and started the season with a runner-up finish at the Brisbane International (l. Nishikori). But with only one win over a Top 10 player (Wawrinka, 2017 Wimbledon), a high-profile victory would bring the World No. 15 in the ATP Rankings to a new level in his career.
Other marquee matches on Monday include seventh seed and defending champion John Isner of the United States facing off against 19th seed Kyle Edmund of Great Britain, sixth seed Kevin Anderson of South Africa taking on Jordan Thompson of Australia, and eighth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece battling No.
Reilly Opelka has had a nice run so far coming through qualifying and winning two matches. This upcoming match will be his toughest test yet, against a player in Medvedev who’s playing well right now. Like most Opelka matches, this match is going to be decided by a few key points. Medvedev can make his opponents come up with tough shots in big moments, and I don’t think Opelka is ready for that yet.
Roger Federer survived an opening round scare against Moldova’s Radu Albot to advance to the round of 32, while Krajinovic built off his impressive run in Indian Wells defeating Stan Wawrinka in a third set tiebreaker. While Federer is vulnerable right now, I don’t think Krajinovic has the game to beat him. Krajinovic has had some extra motivation as of late after former coach Thomas Johansson told him he wasn’t good enough for him, but that won’t be enough to get past the three-time Miami Open champion.
Andrey Rublev picked up his best win of the 2019 season with a straight-set win over Marin Cilic. Even with the discrepancy in ranking, it didn’t come as much of a surprise as Rublev is in good form right now. Both of these nextgen stars will view this as an excellent opportunity to get to the round of 16 at a Masters 1000 event. Shapovalov, as we’ve seen, doesn’t shy away from the big stage, but I feel like Rublev is playing a little better than he is at the moment. This one should be close either way, but I like Rublev’s chances of continuing his run in Miami.
