The Miami Open, which is the second Masters 1000 tournament of the calendar year, begins today.
Top stars such as Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Alexander Zverev, to name a few, will be taking part in the tournament. Rafael Nadal will not be taking part in the tournament after pulling out of his semifinal encounter at Indian Wells against Federer.
Dominic Thiem, who defeated Federer to win his first ever Masters title, will hope to carry on the form he showed at Indian Wells and bag the Sunshine Double.
The qualifying tournament, which took place over the past couple of days, saw Indian star Prajnesh Gunneswaran qualify into the main draw. Gunneswaran had qualified for the Indian Wells Masters as well last week and had reached the 3rd round, defeating Benoit Paire and Nikoloz Basilashvili.
He reached a career-high ranking as well and will hope to continue his fine run of form in the Miami Masters as well.
Gunneswaran will take on Jaume Munar of Spain in the first round and could face South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the second round if he defeats Munar.
