Good draw in Miami for Roger Federer that he is still recovering from the disappointment of Indian Wells where he couldn’t convert 3 championship points (on his serve) before falling to a great Juan Martin Del Potro.

However, the rule of the pro tennis is that next week you have another chance (and another life), so the Maestro will focus and do everything he can to defend his title in Miami.

Roger had a “good start” in Florida as he was handed a rather good draw. In addition, the event will be orphan of the likes of Murray, Nadal, and Wawrinka (and that helps the cause of the other players).

Here the projected path

1st – bye
2nd – qualifier
3rd – Verdasco
4th - Carreno Busta
1/4 – Anderson / Berdych
1/2 – A. Zverev

The other players

A recovering Novak Djokovic is on a collision course with Juan Martin Del Potro (4th round). Grigor Dimitrov may face Richard Gasquet in the 3rd. Kyrgios may play Fognini in the 3rd. Denis Shapovalov will face Viktor Troicki in the opener.

Projected quarters

Federer – Anderson
A. Zverev – Sock
Del Potro/Djokovic – Dimitrov
Cilic – Goffin

Here the full draw.

Agree, probably Roger is stealing too much the show with the absence of the other big4 or top players. The coverage on the WTA seems a bit more balanced. Osaka is posing the same threat, but there are many other "stories"

The other half looked much more challenging with Del Potro, Chung, Dimitrov, Cilic, and Rublev

A very good draw especially with Djokovic and Del Potro on the other side, then of course everything can happen
