Miami Masters: Andy Murray given tough opener with Daniil Medvedev in same section of draw

Andy Murray has been handed a tough draw at the Miami Masters after he was drawn in the same quarter as top seed Daniil Medvedev.

The former world number one will also have a tough start to the tournament, facing Dubai runner-up Lloyd Harris first and Roberto Bautista Agut if he can get through it.

British number one Dan Evans and Felix Auger-Aliassime are also in Murray’s section of the draw.

Alexander Zverev could start his campaign against youngster Carlos Alcaraz again, as he did in Acapulco, but the Spanish ace will have to get past Emil Ruusuvuori first.

Jannik Sinner, Grigor Dimitrov, and David Goffin are also in Zverev’s quarter, although he will generally be pleased with his potential path to the semi-finals.

Second seed Stefanos Tsitsipas may have to face former Grand Slam finalist Kevin Anderson in his first match, and Kei Nishikori is likely to await in round three.

Denis Shapovalov and Milos Raonic are potential quarterfinal opponents for the Greek.

Andrey Rublev, meanwhile, heads up an intriguing quarter that includes Aslan Karatsev, Lorenzo Musetti, and Diego Schwartzman.

On paper, that is the kindest quarter in the Miami Masters draw, but it is also the most unpredictable by far.
