On Saturday, the Miami Open continued its second round of men’s singles action, in addition to more doubles play. Among the stars to take the court were Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka.

The upset of the day came from Croatia’s Borna Coric, who defeated world No. 8 Dominic Thiem in straight sets.

Play was halted for the third straight day, so several matches were delayed. Here are some key results: 

  • The tournament’s No. 1 seed Stan Wawrinka defeated Horacio Zeballos in his opener. Wawrinka is the top seed for the first time in an ATP Masters 1000 tournament.
  • No. 4 seed Roger Federer defeated American qualifier Frances Tiafoe 7-6(2), 6-3. Federer’s 45 Miami wins are second to only Andre Agassi, who holds 61.
  • Nick Kyrgios and Juan Del Potro both won their openers. Del Potro will face Federer in a huge round-three clash. Kyrgios will battle Ivo Karlovic, who defeated Andrey Kuznetsov.
  • Mike Bryan and Bob Bryan won their opening doubles contest. They face a duo featuring Kyrgios in the round of 16.
  • No. 8 seed David Goffin, a semifinalist in 2016’s competition, won in his match against qualifier Darian King. Goffin is also the top Belgian competitor.
  • Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman defeated Spain’s David Ferrer. Ferrer was a Miami Open finalist in 2013.
  • An All-American duo consisting of Jack Sock and Nicholas Monroe won its first doubles contest.
  • No. 10 seed and 2010 runner-up Tomas Berdych defeated Russian wildcard Andrey Rublev. Earlier this year, Rublev earned his first main draw win in a Grand Slam event at the Australian Open.
  • Germany’s Alex Zverev beat Taiwan’s Lu Yen-Hsun. Prior to the match, Zverev was 0-1 in career meetups with his opponent.
  • Americans John Isner and Sam Querrey both won. Isner defeated Brazilian wildcard Thomaz Bellucci, while Querrey defeated Spain’s Tommy Robredo.
