Miami Open: Bopanna-Ebden in semis; Alcaraz, Dimitrov, Zverev in men’s singles QFs

Men’s doubles duo of India’s Rohan Bopanna and Australia’s Matthew Edben reached the semifinal of the ongoing Miami Open tennis tournament on Wednesday.

They defeated Australia’s John Patrick-Smith and his Netherlands’ partner Sem Verbeek in the QFs by 3-6, 7- 6(4), 10-7.

The first set, the India- Aussie duo made numerous unforced errors that put them on a backfoot and they eventually lost it. However, the experience and chemistry of this duo was evident in how they put the first-set loss aside to secure the next two sets.

Also, in the men’s singles quarterfinals, top-seed Carlos Alcaraz extended his winning streak to nine matches following a straight-set win over Lorenzo Musetti 6-3, 6-3, which sealed him a place in the tournament quarterfinals.

Alcaraz’s opponent will be Grigor Dimitrov, who went past the eight-seeded Hubert Hurkacz 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(3) in his round of 16 match.

Also, Alex De Minaur, the world number ten, lost to 57th-ranked Fabian Marozsan of Hungary by 6-4, 0-6, 6-1 in his round-of-16 match in an absolute shocker. Fabian’s opponent will be Alexander Zverev, who had beat Karen Khachanov 6-1, 6-4 in the pre- quarterfinals.

The campaign of Christopher O’Connell also met its conclusion as he was defeated by Jannik Sinner by 6-4, 6-3. Sinner, the Australian Open winner, raced to QFs following this win.

The Miami Open 2024 start on March 17 and will end on March 31.
