Kyle Edmund [19] v  Ilya Ivashka | H2H: Edmund leads 1-0 *w/o

With just the two two Brits standing in Miami, Kyle Edmund will take on Ilya Ivashka as he looks to advance past the second round for the first time in five attempts.

The Belarusian is actually making his debut at the event, and had to toil through the rain delays to get through his first round clash to earn just his third main draw win at an ATP Masters 1000 event.

What might make the difference for Edmund is the fact that he took the time to really recover from his knee injury and then dropping down to the Indian Wells Challenger, winning that title and taking that confidence through to a couple of solid wins.

Ivashka has put in some solid time on the tour in Edmund’s absence, but has not had any back to back wins since the Canberra Challenger at the start of the year, where he reached the final. Edmund has the experience at this level, so it will be interesting to see how the courts in Miami are playing.

In Indian Wells the gritty courts players a lot slower, almost clay like and rewarded those players who benefit from the bounce and time on the ball.

Experience and confidence should be on Edmund’s side, although Ivashka has the advantage of having had some time on these courts in (albeit rain-interrupted) match conditions.

Prediction: Edmund in straight sets.
