Carlos Alcaraz and Stefanos Tsitsipas will most likely be the top 2 seeds at the upcoming ATP 1000 tournament that will be played in Miami in the upcoming 2 weeks. Novak Djokovic is still leading the entry list, but it is well known that he may not play because he is not vaccinated for the coronavirus.
