Round 2 action in Miami gets underway with seeds like Ashleigh Barty in action. We have predictions for all of the day 3 matches in Miami, including matches featuring Simona Halep, Aryna Sabalenka, and Coco Gauff.

Shelby Rogers vs Elena Svitolina

Elena Svitolina is 3-0 against Shelby Rogers in the h2h, and has a trio of quarterfinals this season. Rogers has two quarterfinals on the season and is playing at home but will still be at a disadvantage here. Svitolina should advance from this matchup and extend her h2h. Svitolina in 2

Ashleigh Barty vs Kristina Kucova

Ash Barty seeks her second title of the season and is playing her first tournament outside of her home country of Australia since February 2020. Her first match stateside will be against the qualifier Kristina Kucova, who has qualified for WTA tournaments twice in a row. While Kucova is playing well, Barty should prove to be too much in this one. Barty in 2

Kirsten Flipkens vs Jelena Ostapenko

Kirsten Flipkens leads the h2h 2-1, the veteran Belgian is a lucky loser here and has struggled so far in 2021, in fact it’s been quite some time since Flipkens had a notable tournament result. Jelena Ostapenko has been hit and miss in 2021 and will probably struggle against higher ranked competition, but against Flipkens she is well positioned to even up the h2h. Ostapenko in 3

Barbora Krejcikova vs Iga Swiatek

Dubai finalist Barbora Krejcikova takes on Poland’s top WTA player Iga Swiatek, who already has a WTA title this season. Krejcikova will be tough opposition but Swiatek should be the favorite in this matchup given the difference in performance and results the last few months. Swiatek in 2
