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 :cool:
2005 Roger Federer :cool:
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. :drive:

Can Roger keep up his winning streak which is now at 15? :rocker2:



Good luck Rog, Hopp! :cheerleader:

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

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 :angel:

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

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 :angel: :worship:

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! :yeah:

Allez Fed! :yeah: 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 :worship: Best start to the year in terms of # of titles (even if he missed the big one) since 2006.

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.
Onwards and Upwards God Willing :)

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

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. :eek: These two surfaces at IW and Miami have been an abomination really in the past few years.

first thing I looked out for was Del Potro :lol: not in Fed's quarter yea!! He matches up the worse with Fed and i think respects him too much, the other top 3 not that much. yeah hope Miami is indeed faster, last year vs Nadal is something that can never be unseen :tape:

Apparently, Miami courts are playing considerably faster this year - this is according to Bradius Gilbertacus.

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

I don't know but the 2ond round is going to be played Friday&Saturday.
Today are playng at the down part of the drow and yesterday the high one, so I suppose our champion is going to play on Friday and I believe evening session about 7pm 9pm local time.

Nice - so Roger would have a day of stop to recover the energy before the 4th round and the semies.

In Central Europe there are 5 hours of difference and after sunday 6 hour bcause we change aur time with 1 hour
