Here it is, the second MS1000 of the year and a third attempt at the thread. The draw just came out earlier today. Who's your pick for the title and why?

Novak Djokovic is the defending champion and looks to be in excellent form coming off of a second consecutive victory at Indian Wells beating Federer in the final in 3 sets once again. Who can stop him?

Lucky Haas is not playing.... Anyway, my money is definitely on Djokovic. He can look near unbeatable at Miami. Wasn't pushed at all last year, although he had two walkovers last year.

If he wins it, it will be his 4th Miami title in 5 years, and his 5th overall. Also, it would be his 3rd Indian Wells/Miami double.

Is Haas ever going to come back?

Djokovic to beat Murray in the final!!

Could we make this thread the "thread" for this masters as there's now 3 of them LOL

I think Djokovic is going to be very, very tough to beat especially with Federer not playing, but I have a feeling this is Nishikori's time for a MS1000. I'd love to see a SF between Kei and Novak.

If the seeds hold up, this is what the QFs will looks like:

(1) Djokovic vs. (7) Ferrer

(4) Nishikori vs. (5) Raonic

(6) Wawrinka vs. (3) Murray

(8) Berdych vs. (2) Nadal

The best first round by far is Delpo vs. Pospisil with the winner facing Dimitrov. Man, Pospisil really can't catch a break in any tournaments lately, he should be ranked higher than #60 IMO. At least he's doing great in dubs.

Yes!
Nishikori vs. Raonic again!

The best non-Big 3 matchup.

Damn, I feel like Nadal definitely didn't want to draw Berdych in the quarts. He can beat Murray though.

I completely agree. I actually think that Kei vs. Milos is the second best matchup/rivalry in tennis right now behind Federer vs. Djokovic.

Damn, I feel like Nadal definitely didn't want to draw Berdych in the quarts. He can beat Murray though.

Maybe, but I think Nadal will want to avenge that AO beat down. They both have to make it that far first though.

Yeah, Pops does seem to get some tough draws. Will be interesting to see how Delpo plays assuming he doesn't pull out.

I want Murray to face Nadal as he needs to get that big 3 losing streak off of his shoulder....but at the same time I don't want Nadal losing ranking points!

Djokovic solid favorite for the title again. And he is a good draw also. Five Miami titles after April 5?

I really hope we can see Nadal V Murray here. Both have a point to prove, so a match up between them would be great! Kei and Milos should be fun, those two just have chemistry on court.

Could be a great tournament.

This is official thread.

Djokovic is favorite on slow hard tournament as usual but Nishikori has game to beat him. Otherwise, I see route to title wide open.

Murray has realistic chance of snapping embarrassing 11 matches losing streak against Big 3 in SF.

If Djokovic gets this, he will equal Agassi at least in my opinion. I didn't think that would have been possible when Agassi won his six, but Djokovic is making me rethink a lot of things. :)

So we have some really interesting early potential matchups:

Dimitrov vs. Del Potro in R2
Wawrinka vs. Kokkinakis in R2
Nishikori vs. Troicki in R3
Monfils vs. Tsonga in R3

I looked up about Haas, he was scheduled to play in Miami but he's still feeling some shoulder pain.

He's basically 37, Is it worth it making another comeback? He's had a good career.

I assume Novak will coast here....

Hopefully Nadal continues to improve.

Same for Murray and Delpo.....

When oh when will the next generation step it up?

So, this year, Djokovic will join Agassi with 5 trophys in Miami – unless Lopez stops him.

Wawrinka is going to roll the dice and fire his bullets. This time they will land flush and I say that he will take this one :-D

I do believe that Andre has six titles at this MS event.

But Novak could still equal or exceed that record no problem, who's going to beat him on that court?

I have a feeling about Murray in this tournament.

I haven't given him a chance in the masters since his surgery but I think he has a shot at this.

It all depends on whether he meets Djokovic in the final.
