WWW Miami R1: Andujar vs Giraldo

Both of these men had nice runs at Indian Wells this past week. Giraldo made the third round before losing a close match that went to a deciding-set tiebreaker with Almagro. Andujar defeated Haase, F. Mayer and Ramos before taking a set vs Djokovic in the fourth round. Andujar is showing an improved hard court game and made the third round of Miami last season, defeating Tomic and Verdasco in the process.

Giraldo leads the H2H 2-1 but Andujar won their last meeting at the French Open last season in straight sets. Match could go either way, but for me, Giraldo is the player with the better weapons here and should take it, I think in 3 sets.

Santi leads the H2H 2-1. But both of those wins were challenger matches in Colombia. This is a different animal. The two have never played on hard.

Re: WWW Miami R1: Andujar vs Giraldo

Giraldo is a little more in his element on these courts and would have to be the favourite, but if Andujar redirects well and keeps the rallies going then he has a shot.

Santiago GIRALDO, Donald YOUNG, Gael MONFILS, Juan Martin DEL POTRO, Alexandr DOLGOPOLOV
