Once ranked in the top 20, Tiafoe’s form has faltered since the US Open last year, with only seven wins in 2024 and a recent slip in rankings. It has been an underwhelming couple of weeks for Big Foe since his Delray Beach semi-final run. He managed to get past his first challengers in both Acapulco and Indian Wells but was then promptly knocked out.

He now turns his attention towards the Hard Rock Stadium where he boasts a 13-6 record. His best run came in the 2019 edition when he reached the quarter-finals. However, given his tendency to get wins under his belt in the beautiful Miami weather, it will be interesting how far he can push himself this time around.

The 2023 season saw Frances Tiafoe becoming only the 3rd black player in tennis history to enter the world’s top 10. He did that in April after reaching his first-ever ATP 1000 semifinal at Indian Wells. Overall, it was a solid season in which he won two of his three titles, but he has yet to go beyond semi-finals at any Grands Slam.

Tiafoe started his 2024 campaign in Hong Kong, where he lost to Jungcheng Shang in the quarter finals, after which he lost a couple of exhibition matches.

At the first Grand Slam of the season, Australian Open, Tiafoe disappointed yet again. This time, he was eliminated in the second round after losing to Tomas Machac in straight sets.

After that, Frances went for an American tour in Dallas and Delray Beach, where he reached the quarter-finals and semi-finals, respectively. He remains on the American continent for his next tournament in Mexico, the Acapulco Open.
