Picasso hasn't played since Delray Beach, three weeks ago. He withdrew from Indian Wells with a wrist injury and has not won back to back matches this season. Dodig is 5-9 this season with two wins against top 100 players. Dodig's form since defeating Nadal at Montreal has been mostly poor, and he looks headed out of the top 100 soon.

The H2H is 1-0 Picasso. Petzschner has made the third round at Miami the last two seasons whereas Dodig lost a competitive three set match last season with Soderling in the second round. The courts in Miami are supposedly playing a bit quicker this season and that will be a big advantage to Petzschner in this match-up. If he serves well, he'll dictate rallies and he's going to have his chances on return. If fit, Picasso should win this match comfortably. I just don't think Dodig has the weapons to keep Picasso from attacking him and breaking him down.
