WWW Miami R1: Dimitrov vs Kukushkin
Kukushkin has not played since losing a five set match to Ferrero in Davis Cup on clay in Spain, in early February. He was struggling with a hip injury after the Australian Open and retired vs Murray in the fourth round there. Dimitrov has two wins this season and is in some danger of not making the French Open directly without some victories.
The two have never played. Kukushkin has won at least one MD match in both his trips to Miami. Dimitrov needs the win badly here, and with Kuku's lack of match play and his own ranking situation, it's a match I believe Grigor will take seriously, and he will win in two comfortable sets.
