Prior to the Masters in Miami, Kenten played well in the Challenger in Phoenix where he reached the semi-finals but lost to Shevchenko in three sets. In Florida, the Frenchman has become a real revelation as he has already gone three rounds, knocking out Martinez Portero, De Minaura and McDonald. The match against McDonald’s lasted one hour and 41 minutes, won by Gali 7: 6, 6: 3. Over the course of the match, Gali hit straights with two double faults 15 times, scoring 81% on her first serve and 55% on her second. Acceptance stats: 29%/55%, winner/enforcer stats: 39/16.

For Medvedev, the upcoming match will be only the second at the tournament in Miami. The fifth rocket of the world missed the first round, in the second he defeated Spaniard Carballes Baena in straight sets with a score of 6: 1, 6: 2. In the third he was supposed to play with Molchan, but the Slovak withdrew from the tournament. Note that if he wins in Florida, Daniil Medvedev will overtake Kasper Ruud, who has already been knocked out of the Masters. At the same time, in the event of a defeat in the upcoming match, Andrei Rublev will already have his chance, but in order to overtake Daniil, Rublev will have to win the tournament.
