Day One of the highly anticipated Miami Tennis Cup kicks-off with the first round robin double elimination night time session, featuring former world number one, Juan Carlos Ferrero, and America’s top ranked player, John Isner.
WHO: Stadium Court Match Schedule
7:00 p.m: Nicolás Almagro (ESP) vs Alejandro Falla (COL)

The Australian Open draw ceremony was held on Friday afternoon in Melbourne, where Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal avoided serious danger in the early rounds despite being saddled with unusually low seeding numbers by their names.
It is always difficult to predict the top 10 American men, in order, at the end of each year. This season may be especially difficult, because John Isner no longer has a stranglehold on the No. 1 spot.
