Thiem is a heavy favourite with the bookies here and had what is hopefully a confidence boosting tournament in Miami.

I've not seen Pouille play but he beat Ramos-Vinolas 6-3 6-2 in Auckland this year and has played predominantly on clay in his career so far.

Thoughts on the two 21 year olds, MTF?

Prior to this year, he's played 101 matches on clay and he's played 93 matches on a hard court.

Unless you're unaware of the definition of predominantly?

Easy for Thiem. He will make Rafa scary, this match shouldn`t be problem for him.

Thiem's natural game is very well suited for clay and he has far more firepower so he's easily the favourite.

The Dominator in 2 to set a R2 clash with Rafa. Can't wait to see what he has learned from their last meeting.

Pouille didn't have the best preparation for this match, playing on indoor hard and losing to Mahut on Saturday. So Thiem is the clear favourite.

Both are very talented shotmakers.

I like Thiem more.

The winner of this match will have a chance to save tennis in R2.
