Naomi Osaka didn’t need to hit a ball to reach the Miami Open fourth round for the first time.

Serbian qualifier Nina Stojanovic withdrew from her singles and doubles matches today due to a right thigh injury.

Stojanovic’s withdrawal sends the second-seeded Osaka into the round of 16 by walkover.

Today’s order of play has been revised with Elise Mertens vs Anett Kontaveit moving to Grandstand Not Before 1pm (from second match on Butch Buchholz Court), and Mattek-Sands/Swiatek vs Xu/Zhang moving to Butch Buchholz Court Not Before 1pm (from Court 5).
