Good evening everyone, we're just waiting for the current match between Marin Cilic and Pierre Hughes-Herbert to finish up, and then this one should be getting underway. After Novak Djokovic's first-round exit at Indian Wells last week, he went back to the drawing board with his elbow, but he seems to be positive coming into Miami, saying he's been practising pain-free for the past couple of days.

Benoit Paire had a rather dramatic match with Mischa Zverev yesterday, but got the job done in 3 sets, and could provide a difficult match for Djokovic today, depending on his form!

Right, that match is over, so we'll see play from this one very soon.

Just switched over to Sky in time to see that Djokovic and Agassi are tied for the most titles here, with 6.

I'm not correct in saying this is Novak's first match at Miami, since he played in the doubles yesterday with Viktor Trocki, but they went down in 3 to Mektic and Peya.

Goodness, players are on court already, not that we'd have been shown that! Djokovic will serve first after the warm-up.

No sleeve for Novak today.

I am ever so jealous of how sunny it is in Miami! Two years ago, I was in Florida at this time, but tonight I'm sat in the very not-sunny NI :'(

So that's the warm-up done with, and it's time for play to begin.

Djokovic to serve first. Off we go.
