Overview

Djokovic will look to continue his incredible form this season as he locks horns with World No 14 Thiem. The defending champion comes into the game after cruising past Portugal's Joao Sousa 6-4, 6-1 in the third round.

Djokovic has won the Miami Open five times and a win here will tie him with American legend Andre Agassi, who has won the event a record six times. Such has been Djokovic's mastery of Crandon Court that he is yet to lose here in three years. The last time he lost was in 2013 at the hands of Tommy Haas.

The rising star of tennis, just 22 years old, Thiem has already established himself as a player to look out for. Thiem, as a lot of young players today, is more comfortable on his preferred clay surface. While the slow hard courts in Miami should suit him, he will need to be on top of his game if he has to cause an upset.
