2011 Miami Tennis Masters 1st Round Draw

The 2011 Miami masters draw has a very different feel then any recent Masters draw as Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are drawn in the same half, a result of Novak Djokovic overtaking Federer in the rankings last week.

The Serb is unbeaten this year and surely enters the event as favourite, he is drwan in the same quarter as Britain’s Andy Murray, who is still looking to regain his form after three straight singles defeats.

Nadal and Federer have not played each other in nearly six years in a semi-finals of a main draw event and there is a very good chance that little piece of history could end next week.

Defending Champ Andy Roddick is also in Nadal and Federer’s half and would face Roger Federer in the quarter finals should the seedings play out.

The top 32 seeds all have byes in the first round.
