WWW Miami R1: Lu vs Nieminen
Rendy Lu has the 2-1 H2H advantage between these two players, winning the last two matches; at Halle in 2011 and Johannesburg in 2010. Lu has a 7-4 record in Miami and has won at least one match the last four years at this event. Nieminen has one win the past three seasons in Miami, losing in three sets to Kukushkin here last season.
Both guys are coming off a R1 loss at Indian Wells and Lu won one match last week in Dallas before losing to Dancevic. I think Rendy wins this match in straights. Match-up favors him and the quicker courts in Miami this season do as well.
