Andy Murray will likely have to exorcise the ghosts of last years Miami Open final defeat to Novak Djokovic if he is to claim glory in the Florida sunshine. Custom Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys . In 2015, Djokovic ran away with a 7-6 4-6 6-0 victory to claim the Miami title against Murray. Having been drawn in opposite halves of this years competition as the No 1 and No 2 seeds, they will not meet before the final. This is the potential route that Murray could navigate towards Miami glory. You can watch the Miami Open live on Sky Sports between March 23-April 3... Denis Istomin - second round Andy Murray booked his place in the third round of the Miami Open with a 6-3 7-5 win over Uzbekistans Denis Istomin. The Uzbekistan player managed to break Murray in the second set but couldnt hold onto the advantage. Murray eventually wrapped up a straight sets victory to condemn Istomin to further despair in a shockingly poor run of form.Istomin beat prodigious teenager Borna Coric in three sets in a first-round Miami tie which put some gloss on a bleak year - it was his first win in eight matches during 2016, and his first on the tour since last October. Istomin is the world No 76 and Murray had won both of their previous meetings in 2013.Grigor Dimitrov - third round Grigor Dimitrov is a highly rated youngster Murray might have found himself in a rematch with Federico Delbonis, the world No 53 who eliminated him last week at Indian Wells, but it wasnt to be. Bulgarias Dimitrov ended Delbonis hopes with a second-round 7-6 4-6 6-4 victory.Dimitrov, 24, is the world No 28 and will be no shrinking violet as a third-round opponent. Murray owns a 6-2 head-to-head record against Dimitrov, and has won their three most recent meetings.Gael Monfils - fourth round Gael Monfils brings entertainment to the court A match-up with one of the tours great entertainers would be a fascinating prospect for Murray fans. Monfils, complete with his arsenal of unorthodox shots and party tricks, is always great value to test the worlds top players.Monfils has a respectable two wins from six matches against Murray, although those wins came in 2006 and 2010. Since then, they have played just once and Murray won in the 2014 French Open quarter-final.Monfils defeated Delbonis, who in turn beat Murray, last week at Indian Wells but then lost to Milos Raonic in the last eight.Kei Nishikori - quarter-finals Murray (left) and Kei Nishikori played in the Davis Cup The athletic Japanese player is one of the few players on tour who can keep pace with Murrays high-octane, punishing style of tennis. Yet, the world No 6 Nishikori has only beaten him once in seven attempts.Should they meet in Miami, Murray vs Nishikori would be a rematch from earlier this month. They met in Birmingham in the Davis Cup, with Murray winning to hand Great Britain an insurmountable 3-1 advantage over Japan.That contest was a five-set marathon and Nishikori was up to speed for the vast majority of the match. Should they play again, Murray must know his opponent will not tire in the three-set format of the Miami Open.Milos Raonic - semi-finals Murray beat Raonic in a thriller at Melbourne Park A rematch of the five-set Australian Open semi-final awaits should the huge-hitting Canadian makes progress. And he will be fully be expected to following a wonderful start to the season.Raonic claimed his eighth career ATP Tour title in Brisbane before an impressive run at Melbourne Park. He followed that up by reaching the Indian Wells final where he was dismantled by world No 1 Novak Djokovic for only his second defeat of the year.His recent form suggests he can mix it with the big name players, but he must stay fit and healthy in order to continue his improvement.Murray holds a narrow 4-3 winning record over the world No 12 and has won their last three meetings.Novak Djokovic - final Take a look back at last years Miami Open final where Novak Djokovic beat Murray Take a look back at last years Miami Open final where Novak Djokovic beat Murray Who else but Djokovic? The mighty Serb could be paired against Roger Federer in his semi-final after either Richard Gasquet or Tomas Berdych in the quarters, but it remains difficult to foresee a Djokovic defeat.Chief among his various accolades is a brutally one-sided record over Murray which includes last years Miami final. The world No 1 owns a 22-9 head-to-head advantage which has actually gathered pace in recent years.At last years Montreal Masters, Murray snapped an eight-match losing streak against Djokovic which dated back to his famous 2013 Wimbledon final win. Since the result in Canada Djokovic has romped to three consecutive wins against the Dunblane man, most recently in the Australian Open final in January.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- There were no major letdowns for Masters contenders Matt Kuchar and Jordan Spieth at the RBC Heritage on Thursday. Kuchar, who tied for fifth at Augusta National, shot a bogey-free 5-under 66 to share the first-round lead with Scott Langley and William McGirt. The 20-year-old Spieth tied for second behind Bubba Watson last Sunday and continued his strong play with a 69, part of a large group tied for fifth at Harbour Town Golf Links. Kuchar and Spieth both spent much of Sunday in the pressure cooker that is the Masters final round. But neither player allowed any lingering disappointment or fatigue from a grueling week to slow them down here. "I was anxious to get back out and play another competitive round," Spieth said. "So today was going to be kind of therapy, in a sense, from last week." Langley and McGirt each had five birdies on the front nine to match Kuchar. Harris English was two shots behind after a 68 before Spieth topped a group of 15 another stroke back. In all, 54 competitors shot par or better despite the gusts of 20 mph that swept through the course much of the round. The week after the seasons first major is generally one of rest for many of golfs big names and this years no different. Masters champ Watson took off as did Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy. World No. 1 Tiger Woods continues recuperating from back surgery that kept him from playing Augusta National for the first time in 20 years. Just six of the worlds top-20 ranked golfers teed it up this week, led by Kuchar at No. 6. Spieth, who tied with fellow Masters rookie Jonas Blixt for second last week, didnt consider withdrawing at Harbour Town, convinced of the benefits of quickly getting back to work. It was also a get-to-know-you session for Spieth, who was paired with U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson and 2012 Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III. "It was unbelievable just to be playing with them," Spieth said. For Kuchar, playing was a no-brainer considering the strong run hes been on the past month or so. He tied for fourth at the Texas Open three weeks ago and lost in a playoff at the Houston Open a week later right before the Masters. Anton Forsberg Blue Jackets Jersey Authentic. And Kuchar understands being focused at the Masters can mean being zoned in at Harbour Town. "Youre going to see a lot of guys, if theyre not too run down from a major championship, come out and play some pretty good golf the week following." Kuchar played with confidence and precision, avoiding the winds when possible and playing to the meatiest parts of the smallish greens. After starting on the back nine, Kuchar birdied both the par 5 holes on the front side before finishing with a birdie on his final hole, the ninth, to shoot in the 60s for the sixth time in his past 11 rounds here. "It was some awfully steady golf," he said. Langley, with his early birdie run, looked as if he might finish on top alone after a 17-foot birdie putt on the par-3 14th moved him to 6 under. But Langley wound up in the scrub along the 18th green and took bogey to fall into the three-way tie for first. Langley has missed seven cuts this season, including his past two tournaments. But he felt confident in his game and took motivation from his friend Spieths run at a green jacket last week. "Seeing Jordan do so well, almost win the Masters, inspired me a little bit," Langley said. McGirt played in the same group with Langley and matched his partner with five front-nine birdies. He chipped in on the par-3 17th to move up into the tie for first. "Scott and I were both making birdies left and right," McGirt said. "It was easy to feed off each other."

The 56-year-old Faldo won his first U.S. event at Harbour Town in 1984. ... Davis Love III has been the Harbour master at the RBC Heritage with five victories and a tour-best $2.63 million won here. But he missed the past two years with injuries and was back for the first time since 2011. The layoff didnt slow Love down as he opened with a 1-under 70 -- his 59th career round under par at Harbour Town. ...
