After Djokovic's triumph in Indian Wells, another important 1000 points will be in dispute. Join us while we analyze the main contenders, the player to keep an eye on and the most valuable tennis bets for ATP Miami.
After a tremendous start of year, Novak Djokovic struggled with an eye infection that forced him to withdraw from ATP Dubai and clearly affect his performances at the Davis Cup; however, the Serbian recovered from that problem to claim his 5th Indian Wells career title. Djokovic will be looking to extend his dominance in Miami, after winning the previous two editions of this event. Despite the low price on Djokovic to grab the trophy at 1.57 on bet365, is very unlikely to see him losing after the level he presented by the world no.1 in Indian Wells. Having said that, we believe the Serbian will capture his sixth career title in Miami and for that reason we suggest adding him to your tennis picks for this competition.
Last year’s runner-up and two-time champion of the Miami Open, Andy Murray, will try to bounce back after a disappointing loss at the third round of the BNP Paribas Open against Federico Delbonis. This has always been a good tournament for the British, with the slower conditions suiting his defensive skills. Andy is the highest ranked on bottom half of the draw and this is a good opportunity for him to return to Miami final. There are some dangerous players on his quarter such as Kei Nishikori or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga; however, the Japanese has always struggled against Murray – winning only one of the previous 7 meetings between them – while Tsonga’s powerful tennis is not so effective on this courts. At the semifinals, Murray might face Stan Wawrinka, Rafael Nadal or Milos Raonic. It won’t be easy to defeat any of them, yet Murray shouldn’t miss the opportunity to reach the final of this event and with that in mind, we suggest placing a bet on Murray to reach the final at 3.40 on bet365.
Roger Federer makes his return to competition after undergoing knee surgery in early February to repair a torn meniscus. Known as one of the greatest athletes of all time, is rare to see Federer injured, with his last physical problem occurring in 2013 when a back injury affected him throughout several months. Miami was never a good tournament for the Suisse, with Roger struggling to play his tennis on this slower courts. In his previous 15 appearances, Federer only won one title and his last trophy was achieved in 2006. Due to Federer’s lack of success on this event and his recent physical problems, is hard to trust on him and for that reason, we advise to avoid betting on the former world no.1 at 8.50 on bet365.
Player To Keep An Eye On
Rafael Nadal is slowing returning to his best level, with a terrific performance in Indian Wells where he only lost to Novak Djokovic at the semifinals in a very close match. Despite Nadal’s previous eleven appearances on this event, the Spaniard was never able to win the title. Rafael is a four-time runner-up with his last final played in 2014 when he lost to Djokovic. The Spaniard is on the 3rd quarter with several big servers like Milos Raonic, Nick Kyrgios and John Isner. Adding to those, he might also face at the quarterfinals the two-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka. It’s far from an easy draw, but after the level presented in Indian Wells there are great chances for Nadal to reach the semifinals where he might face Murray as we already mentioned. Due to this, we believe Rafael can make a good run and suggest adding his tennis odds to win the quarter at 3.40 on bet365.
