*** Miami Masters 2012 *** : Lost R3 to Roddick:sad:, But never mind Roger!

Name: Sony Ericsson Open
Category: ATP World Tour Masters 1000
Place: Miami, U.S.A.
Date: 21.03.2012-01.04.2012
Draw Size: S-96 D-32
Surface: Hard
Prize Money: $ 3,973,050

Past Winners:
2011 Novak Djokovic
2010 Andy Roddick
2009 Andy Murray
2008 Nikolay Davydenko
2007 Novak Djokovic
2006 Roger Federer
2005 Roger Federer
2004 Andy Roddick
2003 Andre Agassi
2002 Andre Agassi
2001 Andre Agassi
2000 Pete Sampras

2012 Main Draw: http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2012/403/mds.pdf

Roger's potential path to the final:

R2: Ryan Harrison
R3: Andy Roddick/Gilles Muller
R4: Gael Monfils/ Juan Monaco
QF: Nicholas Almagro/ Mardy Fish
SF: Novak Djokovic/ Juan Martin Delpotro/ David Ferrer
F: Rafael Nadal/ Andy Murray

Unlike IW, Roger has a relatively easy way to the semis on paper. Harrison in the first match isnt the dream draw, but otherwise, sounds okay.

Can Roger keep up his winning streak which is now at 15?



Good luck Rog, Hopp!

(Hope I dont mess up the Thread opener's luck streak and Doris' trust here )

Re: *** Miami Masters 2012 *** : Lets do the Double Roger!!

Thanks for starting the thread Mystique

Roger can't complain about the draw in general I think even though I'm pretty sure he won't underestimate anyone.

First opponent is the winner between Harrison and Starace.

I didn't remember that Roger has played against Ryan already - it was in Indian Wells in 2011 and Roger won 7:6 6:3.

By the way, the last times Roger won the tournaments in Miami he also won in Indian Wells

Nice to read this.
C'MON ROGER!!!!!!!!!

Now in the semi he could have Nole - He did it against Nadal so it's more than possible!

Yes - he played against Harrison a year ago in Indian Wells and he had an easy win and he played a spectacular tennis tesching to the young american how to do

He shouldn't have trouble getting till the semis, that's for sure. That'll save his points. He's already exceeded my expectations by defeating Nadal and claiming the title at IW, so very happy for young Twin Fatherer, as it is!

Everything till RG hereon is really just cream!

Allez Fed! I will be very happy if he gets to the semis. I will be overcome with joy about anything beyond that.

Who would have thought he'd enter Miami on a 15 match win streak Best start to the year in terms of # of titles (even if he missed the big one) since 2006.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Terrific run so far, RF playing super, brilliant to watch. I reckon he has a great chance against Novak if they end up meeting in semis.

Best of luck Feds. At least make it to that semi. And kick some ass there. No not that one. The other one this time.

Brad Gilbert is reporting that the court is faster this year, hopefully that's true!

We have to wait and see, but if this indeed has any element of truth in it, its very good news for Feds. He has avoided the really dangerous big hitters in Delpo and Berdych in his quarter.
Hope it is true, Miami was so unbelievably slow last year. These two surfaces at IW and Miami have been an abomination really in the past few years.
