    Simon, Dolgopolov highlight Friday play Tournament seed Gilles Simon will begin his run at the Masters 1000 Miami with a second-round match against wildcard Lleyton Hewitt. The Frenchman is joined in action by fellow seed Alexandr Dolgopolov, who faces Nikolay Davydenko.

    (11) Gilles Simon vs. (WC) Lleyton Hewitt

    World No. 13 Gilles Simon holds a 2-0 series edge against former World No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt. The players last met at the 2009 Masters 1000 Miami, where a first-round match went to the Frenchman in straight sets.

    Simon returns to competition after reaching the round of 16 at the BNP Paribas Open. The 28-year-old won a pair of matches before falling to South Africa's Kevin Anderson in three sets. Simon is seeking his 14th victory of the season.

    Hewitt defeated Portugal's Joao Sousa in the opening round, 6-1, 7-6(3). The 32-year-old Australian will attempt to record his 16th win in Miami.

    (19) Alexandr Dolgopolov vs. Nikolay Davydenko

    World No. 22 Alexandr Dolgopolov trails former World No. 3 Nikolay Davydenko 0-2 in the series. The two last played at the 2012 Masters 1000 Cincinnati, where the Russian scored a first-round victory in straight sets.

    Dolgopolov is modest 5-5 after losing a first-round match to veteran Carlos Berlocq at the Masters 1000 Indian Wells. The 24-year-old Ukrainian is bidding for his first win since February, when he reached the quarterfinal in Memphis.

    Dayvdenko held on to oust Italy's Paolo Lorenzi in the first round, 6-0, 2-6, 6-0. The 31-year-old Russian, ranked World No. 41 this week, looks to win his 12th match of the season.
