  • Murray, Seppi square off at Sony Open

    3/26/13 10:48 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Murray, Seppi square off at Sony Open Andy Murray will continue his Miami campaign on Tuesday against Andreas Seppi. A place in the quarterfinals is at stake.

    Andy Murray and Andreas Seppi will be meeting for the sixth time in their careers when they clash in round four of the Sony Open on Tuesday.

    Murray leads the head-to-head series 4-1--including 2-0 on hard courts--and he has won four in a row against Seppi since losing their first-ever encounter back in 2006 on the grass courts of Nottingham. They have a not faced each other since 2010, when Murray won a pair of matches in straight sets.

    Seppi, however, is playing the best tennis of his career at 29 years old. He is up to No. 19 in the world and he boasts an 11-6 record for his 2013 campaign. The Italian ran into a red-hot Ernests Gulbis early in Indian Wells, but so far in Miami he has taken out Aljaz Bedene and Thomaz Bellucci.

    In three tournaments this season, Murray owns a title in Brisbane, a runner-up at the Australian Open, and a quarterfinal at the Indian Wells Masters. The third-ranked Scot kicked off his Indian Wells campaign by routing Bernard Tomic before getting past another up-and-comer, Grigor Dimitrov, 7-6(3), 6-3.

    As their past history suggests, this is not a good matchup for Seppi. Murray can do everything his opponent can do and he can do all of it in superior fashion. Count on the second seed advancing in straight sets.

This should be an uncomplicated, straight-forward match for murray. when was the last time seppi beat a top 10 player, much more a top 4? He plays well in some matches, but over-all he's just a journey-man who's won very few itles.

I agree with Ricky, muray in straigfht sets, maybe 6-3, 6-2.
