ATP Miami Open Tennis 2024 – Day 4 Tips and Betting Preview

We have a potentially sizzling Saturday to look forward to at the ATP Miami Open with the rains of Friday leading us to a much more congested schedule around the grounds at the Hard Rock Stadium complex as technically the second round of the latest Masters 1000 event will conclude.

I say technically because the weather forecast isn’t a great deal better for Saturday than it was for Friday and the rain is likely to play a major role in proceedings. If it doesn’t then all three of Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner and Daniil Medvedev are due on court.

Stadium Court

There are three matches on the schedule on the Stadium on Saturday with the American number one Taylor Fritz taking to the main stage to open up the show. He will meet the Brazilian qualifier Thiago Seyboth Wild before the Australian Open champion Jannik Sinner returns to conclude his second round match with Andrea Vavassori which was halted in the opening set on Friday. The other men’s match comes in the night session as the Indian Wells winner Carlos Alcaraz meets his fellow Spanish player Roberto Carballes Baena.


We now have four matches over on the Grandstand court on Saturday and once a women’s match opens the show, Denis Shapovalov and Stefanos Tsitipas will conclude their second round clash when they are done. Daniil Medvedev will be the next star name on this court when he faces off against Marton Fucsovics in a match which was scheduled for Friday but couldn’t get on court. Hubert Hurkacz is a former winner here and he opens his latest campaign against Alexander Shevchenko before one of the matches of the day is the last men’s match on this court. That sees Alexander Zverev going up against Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Butch Buchholz

That leaves us with just a couple of men’s matches over on the Butch Buchholz court on Saturday. After a women’s match has opened the show Andy Murray will return to conclude his second round clash with Tomas Martin Etcheverry which was 3-3 in the first set when the rain camped in on Friday. The other men’s match on this court comes much later in the day and will see the wildcard Martin Landaluce taking on the big serving American player Ben Shelton, although whether the rain will allow action that far down the schedule remains to be seen.

Best of the Rest

The good thing about the rain on Friday is it has completely jammed the schedule on the outside courts for Saturday as so many matches are to be played. Assuming the rain plays ball at some point we will see the likes of Frances Tiafoe, Casper Ruud and Gael Monfils over on Court 1 while Court 7 will see Tommy Paul on show. Court 5 will be where the likes of Tallon Griekspoor, Alexander Bublik, Seb Korda, Lorenzo Musetti and Grigor Dimitrov will all get their campaign underway, weather permitting.


There isn’t a great deal that I like over the course of the day on Saturday really, especially when we don’t know how much of the schedule is going to be played and what the conditions will be like when certain matches are played out. I do still have a bet from Friday which is to be played out at some point on Saturday and I will add one more to the collection, which comes in the form of Dan Evans to get the better of Christopher Eubanks.

Eubanks came from nowhere on the grass last season to suggest that he could be a force in the game with the big serve which served him so well on the lawns but ever since he got back onto the hard courts last term it has been immediately obvious. Outside of a Davis Cup match against someone ranked outside of the top 500 in the world, Eubanks has won just two of his last 12 matches. To be fair, Evans hasn’t exactly been in winning form himself recently but when he has gone down he has been very competitive and his all-round game is just better than Eubanks and I expect to see that shown on the scoreboard at the end of the match, particularly with the rain and heavy conditions likely to do Eubanks no favours.
