Last year Elena Rybakina was a win away from completing the ‘Sunshine Double’, just falling short as she lost to Petra Kvitova in the Miami Open final. Daniil Medvedev won the men’s title in Miami as he beat Jannik Sinner in the final.

Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek will headline the men’s and women’s singles draws at the Miami Open.

Djokovic will be playing the Miami Open for the first time 2019 and will be looking to win the tournament for a seventh time. He has not competed in Miami for the last few years due to being unable to travel to the US because he is unvaccinated.

Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner and Daniil Medvedev look set to be the leading contenders for the men’s title along with Djokovic.

Rafael Nadal looks unlikely to play after withdrawing on the eve of Indian Wells.

Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka will lead the women’s field while last year’s runner-up Elena Rybakina is hoping to be ready after missing Indian Wells.

World No. 3 Rybakina withdrew from Indian Wells hours ahead of starting her title defence due to illness.

Defending champion Petra Kvitova is not playing as she is pregnant.

Simona Halep will be making her return after getting a main-draw wild card. Miami will be Halep’s first tournament since the 2022 US Open.
