Day nine: Glasspool suffers quarter-final exit after rain delay halts play
Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara returned to action after a rain delay brought an end to play in Miami - with the British, Finnish duo eventually bowing out in a quarter-final defeat to Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow, 6-7(3), 6-3, 11-9.
After coming back from a set down to clinch the second, Glasspool and Heliovaara's momentum was interrupted by a rain delay that forced the match to come to a halt at 6-7(3), 6-3, 4-3.
Once play resumed, it was the British, Finnish duo who found the initial break of serve, but a strong fight saw the Americans break back twice to earn match point and wrap up the win at the second time of asking.
This result now means there are no Brits left in the singles or doubles draw at the Miami Open.
Neal Skuspki and Wesley Koolhof’s run in Miami came to an end with a quarter-final defeat to Santiago Gonzalez and Edouard Roger-Vasselin.
The world No.1 duo lost to the Mexican, French team for the second consecutive ATP 1000 event, narrowly missing out on a place in the semi-finals 4-6, 7-6(5), 10-5.
Skupski and Koolhof took the only break of the match to seal the opening set, but despite leading at the start of both the second set and the match tie-break, Gonzalez and Roger-Vasselin came out on top in the big moments.
Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara will have to return on day eight to finish their quarter-final after rain brought an end to play in Miami.
World No.1 duo, Skupski and Wesley Koolhof, overturned a break deficit in the second set to beat Mackenzie McDonald and Botic Van De Zandschlup 6-4, 7-6(5).
In the final eight, they face a rematch with Santiago Gonzalez and Jean-Julien Rojer, who knocked the British, Dutch team out of Indian Wells two weeks ago.
Meanwhile, Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara needed only 49 minutes to defeat Alexander Bublik and Miomir Kecmanovic 6-2, 6-2.
Next up, they’ll take on American partnership Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow – who knocked out Jamie Murray and Michael Venus in the second round.
After easing through their first round match, Salisbury and partner Rajeev Ram were defeated by singles stars Ben Shelton and Tommy Paul 6-3, 6-4 in the second round.
The Americans only needed one break in both sets to clinch the match win against last year's Miami Open runners up.
Meanwhile, Murray and New Zealand's Michael Venus also fell short against the all-American pairing of Jackson Withrow and Nathaniel Lammons in a 7-6(2), 6-4 loss.
After prevailing in the first set tie-break, Withrow and Lammons went on to find the only break of serve in the match before clinching the win on their fifth match point.
Fresh off a quarter-final finish in Indian Wells, British No.1 Norrie was defeated by France’s Gregoire Barrere 6-3, 6-2 in one of the last matches of the day.
Norrie has already won 21 matches so far this season and despite needing treatment on his ankle during the match, felt disappointed in an uncharacteristic performance.
“I’m in a bit of a state of shock,’ said Norrie after his loss. ‘I had prepared well and was expecting a good run here. I jammed it (his ankle) at 4-1 in the second, but I had been feeling fine, it wasn’t a factor. I’ve got to put this behind me quickly.”
Meanwhile, Evans’ Miami Open campaign came to an end against Italy’s Lorenzo Sonego as the world No.59 came back to win 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
Despite taking an early one set lead, Evans was only able to capitalise on one of 13 break points in the match, which eventually proved costly against the three-time ATP title winner.
Back-to-back breaks in the first and third game of the deciding set gave Sonego the platform he needed to see out the win in two hours and 30 minutes.
Murray on the other hand had to come through a tough battle with fourth seeds Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer. He and New Zealand partner Michael Venus came through 6-4, 7-6(10).
Glasspool and Heliovaara will face Alexander Bublik and Miomir Kecmanovic, while Murray and Venus are set to take on Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow in the second round.
After reaching the final in Indian Wells the week before, Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof wasted no time in Miami - racing to a 6-1, 6-2 victory against Jason Kubler and Rinky Hijikata.
Koolhof and Skupski opened their bid for a fourth ATP Masters 1000 title with a dominant display over the reigning Australian Open champions, converting six of nine break point opportunities.
The top seeds sprinted ahead to an unsalvageable 4-0 lead in both sets of the match, proving too strong for the Australians to fend off as they wrapped up the match in just 63 minutes.
Last year, Skupski and Koolhof missed out on the title in Miami, after falling short against singles stars Hubert Hurkacz and John Isner in the final. This year, the British, Dutch duo will be looking to go one step further to clinch the trophy.
Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram made a winning start at the Miami Open against Italian duo Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini – securing a comfortable 6-4, 6-3 win to reach the second round.
The second seeds progress to face American singles stars Tommy Paul and Ben Shelton in the next round.
The three-time Grand Slam champions saved all three break point opportunities faced, including two in the opening game of the second set to see out the victory in an hour and 14 minutes.
Later today, Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof will begin their quest to lift the Miami Open title up against Rinky Hijikata and Jason Kubler.
Raducanu lost out to former Grand Slam champion Bianca Andresscu 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 in two hours and 35 minutes.
In a battle between two US Open title-winners, Raducanu showed her strength to come back from a one set deficit to level – showing excellent perseverance to break on her eighth chance of the second set and force a third set decider.
The two fought for control in the early stages of the third, but Raducanu’s first double fault of the contest set up two break points for the Canadian at 3-2. The world No.32 took her chance on the second time of asking, capitalising on a backhand error from the Brit to take a two game lead.
Andresscu kept her foot on the gas to stave off a break point in the following game and eventually saw out the win with four consecutive games.
Meanwhile, Murray was defeated by Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic 6-4, 7-5 in a frustrating match for the former world No.1.
Murray fought hard to break Lajovic with the Serbian serving for the match at 5-4, but couldn’t prevent the world No.76 closing out the win in one hour and 38 minutes.
“I didn't really feel like I moved particularly well, which is really important for me, something I've been doing very well actually in most of the matches this year,” he said in his post-match press conference.
“Obviously I was hoping to do much better here. Obviously, I start clay court training soon but I don’t know where.”
Edmund’s return to the ATP Tour for the first time since the Australian Open was met with defeat to China’s Yibing Wu 7-5, 7-5.
The 28-year-old came back from a break down in both sets but lost decisive service games in the final stages of both sets.
