Murray will look to find form when he takes on Dimitrov in the third round of the Miami Open. The World Number Two comes into this game after cruising past Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin 6-3, 7-5 in the second round.

The two-time winner at Crandon Park has not been in the best of form of late, and it showed in his second round match. His serve percentage was only 52%, while he made 24 unforced errors, something rarely seen from the Scot. Although he will be aware that he needs to cut down on the errors to progress to the next round.

A couple of years back, it seemed that tennis had a new star in Dimitorv, who beat Murray to progress to the semi-final of Wimbledon. However, the Bulgarian failed meet expectations and the following two years have been tough for him.

The World Number 28 is yet to win an ATP title in two years, however, he could still be a dangerous player and would look to cause an upset.
