The Favourites to Qualify
Despite having a high level of skill and previously ranking highly, some players must go through the qualifying rounds to secure their place in this year’s Miami Open. Let’s take a look at the favourites competing in the qualifiers, hoping to perform well and make it into this exciting tournament edition.
Favorite ATP Players
The Chilean tennis player was one of the surprises at Indian Wells, reaching the quarterfinals. Now, he hopes to replicate and even improve upon this performance in each subsequent tournament. In his last two tournaments, he had an outstanding performance, losing only to top-ranked players.
Favorite WTA Players
The Canadian tennis player has reached as high as fourth in her career. Despite her past successes, she was eliminated in the third round of Indian Wells by Iga Swiatek, ending her run in the tournament earlier than she had hoped. Nevertheless, she remains a formidable competitor and will undoubtedly continue to strive for excellence in future events.
The Norwegian tennis player is another favourite to watch out for and, coincidentally, will be facing Bianca Andreescu in an upcoming match. Despite having been ranked in the top ten previously, she currently sits at 77th in the world rankings. At Indian Wells, she made a strong showing by advancing to the fourth round, where she ultimately lost to the world number one
