All the remaining first-round ATP matches will be completed on Day 2 of the 2022 Miami Open. That includes Andy Murray taking on Federico Delbonis, a rematch for a huge upset at Indian Wells six years ago. The in-form Jenson Brooksby takes on Federico Coria to kick off his campaign. Who do you think will advance to the next round?

ATP Miami Open Day 2 Predictions

Pedro Martinez vs Jan-Lennard Struff

Head-to-head: Struff 2-0

Jan-Lennard Struff has only earned one win in 2022 so far, which comes as a surprise given his good performance at the ATP Cup to kick-off the campaign. The German is struggling for match rhythm and confidence and while this is a great opportunity to break the losing streak, on current form he can’t really be considered the favorite of this clash. Pedro Martinez adapts to hard courts much better than most other clay-courters, mostly due to his forehand. He lost to Struff in three sets at the US Open two years ago, but the comparison between the form of the German back then and now is quite shocking.

Sebastian Baez vs Kamil Majchrzak

Head-to-head: First meeting

Both players have been rather disappointing lately and this is a great chance for them to secure a win. Sebastian Baez was easily dismissed by Nick Kyrgios at Indian Wells, while Kamil Majchrzak went down to the eventual champion Taylor Fritz, barely giving him a match. Then they both went to the Phoenix Challenger and gave showings that didn’t have much to do with their potential. Baez is still lacking hard court experience, which makes the Pole a more sensible pick.

Jenson Brooksby vs Federico Coria

Head-to-head: First meeting

Despite being thirty years of age, Federico Coria has only played as many hard-court matches in his career. This match appears to be rather straightforward as the quality of Jenson Brooksby’s baseline game on this surface is just so much higher. The Argentinian can try to build up the points with his forehand like he would on clay, but the shot isn’t heavy enough to do much damage to the up-and-coming American.
Prediction: Brooksby in 2

Federico Delbonis vs Andy Murray

Head-to-head: Delbonis 1-0

Federico Delbonis famously beat Andy Murray at Indian Wells back in 2016 but lately, the Argentinian’s hard-court game has been even shakier than usual. In his last sixteen matches on the surface, he only claimed two wins at the ATP Cup this year, both against players ranked outside the Top 350. Murray is on a streak of second-round exits but playing at a very competitive level right now. He should be able to exact revenge and earn himself another chance to break that cycle.
Prediction: Murray in 2
