Miami Open 2023: Preview and Predictions for Zverev, Gauff, and Pegula's Matches

The Miami Open 2023 is set to witness some thrilling matchups in the round of 16, with Alexander Zverev, Coco Gauff, and Jessica Pegula among the top contenders.

Alexander Zverev vs. Christopher Eubanks

Both Zverev and Eubanks possess similar heights and ages, and their playing styles share striking similarities. Both players excel at holding serves and engaging in epic baseline rallies. Zverev has a slight edge in break point conversion, but Eubanks has faced fewer break points on his serve. Despite Zverev's straight-set victory over Eubanks on clay last year, the American has the potential to challenge Zverev on the faster hard courts of Miami.

Coco Gauff vs. Caroline Garcia

Gauff and Garcia are tied 2-2 in their head-to-head record, with Garcia winning their last two encounters. Garcia is in excellent form, having recently been named one of TIME's Women of the Year. Gauff, the local favorite, is riding a wave of confidence and popularity. Both players have won two-thirds of their service games and around 40% of their return games. Garcia will face a formidable challenge in Gauff, who is determined to claim the Miami Open title.

Jessica Pegula vs. Emma Navarro

This is the first meeting between Pegula and Navarro. Navarro has been making a name for herself, recently defeating Aryna Sabalenka at Indian Wells. Pegula, on the other hand, has a wealth of experience on the Miami Open courts, having reached the semifinals last year. Both players have similar service game win percentages, but Pegula has a slight edge in return game win percentage. Navarro will need to play at her best to overcome Pegula's experience and consistency.
