Did you know? Isner is 10-10 in finals on American soil. In fact 20 of the 24 finals he has reached have been in America.
Did you know? From 2008-2017 at Miami, Berdych only lost to 1 player outisde of the top 10 (Dimitrov 2012).
Did you know? Miami is Djokovic's best Masters event in terms of titles won (6) and match-win percentage (88%).
Did you know? Miami is the best hard court Masters event for several players in terms of match-win percentage. This applies for Ferrer, Berdych, Nishikori and Kyrgios, all of whom have reached multiple semifinals here.
Did you know? Federer has won 3 Miami titles but they have all come after winning the title in Indian Wells.
Did you know? The Australian Open champion has gone on to win Miami 50% of the time since 2003.
Did you know? Miami is one of two Masters 1000 tournaments (as well as Indian Wells) to feature 96 players in the main draw. This results in seeded players needing to win 6 rounds in order to win the championship and unseeded players needing to win 7 rounds. In turn this may partly explain why the tournament has produced less "surprise" champions, as 89% of the champions since 1990 had at least reached a Grand Slam final at the time of winning Miami. In comparison this number is 71% at the Paris Masters, which has a draw of 48 players.
