Jordan Thompson put on a very solid performance against Federico Delbonis in the first round, coming through a very tight 2 sets match, 7-6/6-4. Thompson has been playing some solid tennis recently, and he will want to keep the momentum going in 2021, but he will have to make sure he can raise his level drastically in this second round match.

Milos Raonic has had a strong start to the 2021 season, putting on some solid performances at the ATP Cup and as well at the Australian Open. Raonic is getting better every match he plays and he will soon be at his best again. Raonic has a massive serve, and for a big guy, he can also move incredibly well around the court. Raonic just needs to work on his second serve improvement as this is currently the weakness which strong opponents are able to target to beat him. Can Raonic come out here very strongly and make his way to the third round in Miami?
This is going to be the first meeting between both players, and we are definitely in for an interesting encounter in the second round. Milos Raonic will want to get some more positive results under his belt, and I am sure he will do exactly that right here in this second round encounter. Jordan Thompson of course can push Raonic to have to play his best, but at the end of the day, Raonic is just levels above Thompson at the moment. Milos Raonic to win and make his way to the third round of the Miami Open.
