The second leg of the Sunshine Double is taking place this month, and the Miami Open will resume in 2023.

Following the first leg in Indian Wells, the world’s best players will gather in Florida for the Masters 1000 event at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. British tennis stars Andy Murray, Cameron Norrie, and Emma Raducanu will be among those hoping for a successful conclusion to the four-week swing before the circuit shifts to clay.

The Miami Open, the second part of the coast-to-coast Sunshine Double, features Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek. Hard Rock Stadium always goes all-out for the 1,000-point tournament, which serves as our last taste of hard-court action before the clay-court season begins. The second round is automatic for all seeded participants.

Here’s how to watch a live stream of the Miami Open 2023 from wherever you are, beginning with FREE access. The tournament schedule is also available to further down the website.

Miami Open 2023 Preview:

The men’s competition is an ATP Masters 1000 event, while the women’s is a WTA 1000 event. The event’s 38th iteration will take place on the grounds of Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

On the men’s side, former World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz will defend his championship. The Spanish teenager had an injury-plagued start to the season, missing the Australian Open. Since then, he has won the Argentina Open, advanced to the final of the Rio Open, and is currently in the quarterfinals of the Indian Wells Masters.

Former US Open champion Daniil Medvedev, who is probably the most in-form men’s singles player on the tour right now, will give him a run for his money. The Russian has dominated the tour in the last month like no other, claiming three titles in three weeks and now aiming for his fourth trophy of the season at Indian Wells.

Along with Rafael Nadal, Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic will be among the notable absentees. While the left-hander recovers from a hip injury, he will miss the Miami Open because current US rules prohibit unvaccinated foreign visitors from entering the country.

Aryna Sabalenka and Elena Rybakina will face off in a repeat of their Australian Open final at the BNP Paribas Open this weekend. Needless to say, they will be the two major players in Miami as well.

Defending champion Iga Swiatek was thrashed by Rybakina in the semifinals, but more significantly, the Pole has confessed to ribcage pain. Nonetheless, the World No. 1, who won in Doha last month, hopes to be ready for the Miami Open.

Swiatek is the defending champion and world No. 1, but she isn’t exactly at the summit of the triumvirate that has emerged to dominate the women’s game. Both Elena Rybakina and Aryna Sabalenka have won their most recent meetings with the Pole, and while Rybakina defeated both players on her way to the Indian Wells title, Sabalenka defeated Rybakina to claim the Australian Open.

The Miami Open draw has kept top seed Swiatek and No.2 seed Sabalenka apart, but Rybakina, the No.10 seed, could meet Swiatek as early as the quarterfinals.

With Novak Djokovic still unable to join the US, the young Spaniard is the clear favourite in the men’s draw following his victory at Indian Wells over the weekend. He’s developed his own burgeoning rivalry with Jannik Sinner, who would have several more titles if he wasn’t continually drawn against Alcaraz.

If Andrey Rublev, Alexander Zverev, or Casper Ruud can stop Sinner, or if Holgar Rune or Taylor Fritz can beat Alcaraz, the two could face in the Miami semis. Then there’s Andy Murray, who might meet the Spaniard in the third round.

With so much focus on the next generation, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Daniil Medvedev, the latter of whom finished second in California, may feel as if they have something to show. If they can beat Frances Tiafoe, Dan Evans, Cameron Norrie, Berrettini, and Felix Auger-Aliassime, the two could advance to the other semi-final.
