Pathetic that no WC was given to guys like FAA, DeMinaur, Escobedo etc, yet Miomir Kecmanovic and Nicola Kuhn get one??:rolleyes::rolleyes: Unbelievable.

Miami giving WC to whoever gives them the most cash I see.

FAA already out of quallies in a 3rd set tb loss to Mcdonald :(

Hilarious if Djok is actually playing again

I mean, if he wants to ruin any chance he has of a proper comeback, sure.

At least Nadal is doing the right thing.

Fed's draw is boring and uninspiring. Much more interested in the bottom half with Del Po and Djokovic. Nice to see Kyrgios back into the mix even though my expectations are low.

Chris Eubanks got a WC. They are favoring new fresh faces than people already a little established.

Someone just told me that Miami is faster than IW. I always thought it was slower.

What's the truth :confused:
I can't believe any HC court be as slow as IW was this year. As I posted elsewhere, Annacone said it was literally a 25, which is clay speed. Sure, Miami has always been slow, but it simply can't be as viciously slow as IW. Ellison wants it that way. :(

Larry designs it for his buddy Rafa. Needs him in the tournament as long as possible so they can go out golfing everyday.

James Blake is already off to terrible spot as director by trying to give serena a high seed. You cant give someone a WC and then seed them #1 because there are similarities

I believe the court has less grit.

But when it’s humid (a lot of the time) the balls pick up some of the moisture and thus slow down.

Bottom line: it’s still a hard court. Might have to hit 1 or 2 more balls to win points.

The most interesting match on paper looks to be a R16 encounter between Djoker and Del Po (if Djokovic makes it that far). Also a possible Kyrgios/Zverev 4R.
Amazing how Kyrgios and Zverev are so often "drawn" to play against each other quite early in tournaments. Organisers seem to love these faux rivalries.

I will be very surprised if Federer doesn't leave Miami still as the number one player in the world.

I’ve been watching tennis for 33 years and have never really taken an interest in the draws, but let me tell you this might be the easiest draw Roger Federer has ever gotten. I mean seriously every big server and hitter is on the bottom side of this draw. If he recovers well from his last two matches in Indian Wells which I believe he will then he might just get his 4th title in Miami. Just by looking at the draw he should almost cruise to the quarterfinals to maintain his number one ranking until the French Open, and if he’s able to hit a gear similar to last week I see him in the final again. On the bottom half it’s tricky because of how much Juan Martin Del Potro has played, but with this Miami crowd I look for him to come out of the bottom half of the draw. Prediction: Federer vs Delpotro rematch

Anyone know how the players are seeded? I understand the top 4 seeded in 4 qtrs..but how about the rest? Is it then random for the reamining seeds before getting to the unseeded players?

Novak Djokovic will be the wild card in all of this. If he plays well and Delpotro gets tired I’m calling for a Federer vs Djokovic final.
