We’re about halfway through the Miami Open, the last hardcourt tournament before the tour heads to the clay season. It’s been quite an interesting tournament already (who said March Madness was just for basketball?!). So far we’ve seen quite a few seeded players fall: Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal, David Ferrer, Stan Wawrinka, John Isner, Andy Murray & more are all already out of the tournament before the 4th round.
This Week’s Tournament:
Miami Open – Miami, FL USA
4th Round Matches to Watch
Men’s fourth round action takes place today. We’re looking forward to watch Dominic Thiem, who has had an outstanding 2016 so far, take on Novak Djokovic. Grigor Dimitrov had his biggest win of the year so far, taking out Andy Murray in 3 sets. He takes on Gael Monfils in what is guaranteed to be an entertaining match!
Tennis + Puppies = Love
