Key Results From Day 2 of Men's Play (Round 1)


By Justin Ross

In addition to the second day of men's singles, Thursday marked the start of doubles at the Miami Open. There was action in the court and action in the skies, as rain canceled or suspended several evening matches.

Here are some key takeaways:

  • Former world No. 5 Tommy Robredo, Spain, defeated Nikoloz Basilashvili, the top player from the country of Georgia. Basilashvili was the runner-up at the Memphis Open.
  • Benjamin Becker, Germany, was defeated by Adrian Mannarino, France. Becker was 5-0 in previous meetups.
  • A doubles team featuring American Sam Querrey won.
  • Matches that were canceled or suspended included a doubles contest that featured Nick Kyrgios.
  • Six of the 11 male competitors who are 21-and-under played. Three of them in Croatia’s Borna Coric, Russia’s Andrey Rublev and American Frances Tiafoe secured victories.
  • Tiafoe’s victory over Konstantin Kravchuk was his second in two weeks. He defeated Kravchuk at the Irving Texas Challenger. Next up for Tiafoe is Roger Federer.

Tiafoe on facing Federer:

"I know I can play some really good tennis. You're playing the greatest player of all-time, and that's something you dream for and something you work towards, so it's going to be an honor either way."

Today, several notable men take to the courts, including Rafael Nadal, Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov. Highlighting doubles action is an all-Croatian duo that features world No. 9 Marin Cilic.
