Kyrgios heads Aussie charge in Miami
Nick Kyrgios has been seeded 24th at the Miami Open and will be joined in the main draw by fellow Aussies Sam Groth and John Millman.
Nick Kyrgios has been seeded for the ATP Miami Masters and will head an Aussie men’s contingent of three at the prestigious stop in Florida.
Kyrgios, seeded 24th, receives a first-round bye and will in the second round take on the in-form Marcos Baghdatis, provided the Cypriot gets past a qualifier in his opening match.
Should the seedings hold, Kyrgios is projected to meet American No.13 seed John Isner in the last 32.
Also in the draw are unseeded Aussies Sam Groth and John Millman.
Groth will look to rediscover the form that took him to the brink of the top 50 in 2015 when he tackles Victor Estrella Burgos in the first round for a shot at No.14 seed Dominic Thiem.
Millman lines up against Spaniard Pablo Carrena Busta, with the winner advancing to a second-round meeting with 23rd seed Pablo Cuevas.
Fellow Aussies Omar Jasika and John-Patrick Smith fell in the opening round of Miami Open qualifying.
