The Miami Open goes ahead this week under testing circumstances with a depleted field, and a huge opportunity for the chasing pack of next-gen contenders to make their mark.
World No.1 Novak Djokovic has pulled out of the tournament to “use this precious time at home to stay with my family”. He joins Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem in swerving the showdown in Florida.
