ATP Miami Masters: Novak Djokovic vs Lukas Rosol Match Preview
After a shocking defeat to Juan Martin del Potro at Indian Wells last week, Novak Djokovic comes into this week's event at Crandon Park in Miami looking to make amends. The Serb, who is the reigning champion here, is set to kick off his 2013 campaign against famous one match wonder Lukas Rosol.

World No.1 Novak Djokovic suffered a shocking defeat to Juan Martin del Potro last week at the BNP Paribas Open, is all set to defend a massive 1000 ATP points here at the Sony Open. That defeat to the Argentine also meant that the Serb was no longer undefeated in this new season.

The four-time Aussie Open champion still comes in as on odds on favourite to claim a fourth title here at Crandon Park. His form in 2013 has been nothing short of incredible, and it will once again take something really special to overcome the defiant 25 year-old.

His win-loss record of 17-1 coupled with two ATP titles, exemplifies his superb form this year and what’s more, with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer both opting out of this event, the task has been made even easier. His draw has both David Ferrer and Juan Martin del Potro in it.

Mercurial Czech Lukas Rosol is capable of producing moments of brilliance, but at the same time is guilty of lethargy every now and then. His performance against Stanislas Wawrinka in the Davis Cup summed up the Czech’s singles career, where he played some exquisite shots but also made a lot more unforced errors which led to his downfall.

Rosol, who will always be fondly remembered for his match against Rafael Nadal back at Wimbledon 2012, has the potential but his commitment and work ethic is often found wanting. A determined Rosol can spell trouble for the best of players, and his opponent will be aware of that.

This is the first time these two will clash, and on paper it seems like a pretty straight forward win for Novak Djokovic here.
