Carlos Alcaraz vs Dusan Lajovic: World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz will square off against Serbian veteran Dusan Lajovic in the third round of the Miami Open 2023.
He played his first match in Miami Open yesterday and easily defeated Facundo Bagnis. There is no doubt he is the favorite to win the tournament. Last week, he overwhelmed World No.6 Daniil Medvedev in the final of the Indian Wells 2023 and ended the Russian’s 18-match win streak, and subsequently reclaimed the top spot by replacing Novak Djokovic. If the teenager emerges victorious in Miami Open also, then he can retain his top spot.
Meanwhile, Lajovic, ranked 76th is 9-5 on the season. He started in this tournament by upsetting Andy Murray and Maxime Cressy. Though he couldn’t qualify for the Indian Wells 2023, he reached the quarterfinals at Argentina Open, Rio Open, and Santiago Open.
