Miami Open: Americans succeed, Brits battle, and a magnificent Monday

Miami Open: Americans succeed, Brits battle, and a magnificent Monday

Sunday was a good day for American Women as Danielle Collins, Coco Gauff, Emma Navarro and Jessica Pegula all won, joining Madison Keys in the last 16. No. 3 seed and local favorite Gauff thrilled the crowd as she dispatched lucky loser, Océane Dodin, 6-4 6-0, winning 10 consecutive games from 2 - 4 down, and now faces France’s Caroline Garcia who ended Naomi Osaka’s run in Miami.

With Taylor Fritz, Frances Tiafoe, and Tommy Paul out of the tournament, we had our fingers crossed for the remaining US men battling it out at the Miami Open. That said, there was a tad bit more success for the American men yesterday. Ben Shelton defeated Martin Landaluce 6-3, 6-4.

On the other hand, the Brits battled long but come up short. One day after Great Britain’s Jack Draper fell to Nicolas Jarry in 3 hours, 35 minutes to establish the Miami Open record for longest match, Andy Murray came close to eclipsing the mark. Murray participated in the third longest match in tournament history. Tomas Machac outlasted the two-time Miami Open champion in 3 hours, 28 minutes.

So what's on tap for today's matches? Monday should be magnificent at the Miami Open. The entire women’s Round of 16 will be contested today, with 14 seeded players vying for a spot in the quarterfinals. Meanwhile, we'll get a chance to see remaining American men continue to fight through the draw — Shelton, Korda, and Eubanks are all scheduled for today.
