Coco Gauff has lost just one of her last 23 matches in the United States, which occurred against Maria Sakkari at Indian Wells earlier this month.

Coco Gauff, who celebrated her 20th birthday on March 13, is the youngest American player with a top-three seed at Miami. The reigning US Open champion, hailing from South Florida, expressed her desire to win a title at her hometown event, emphasizing the convenience of not having to travel with the trophy and her hope for her favorite NFL team, the Dolphins, to win another Super Bowl if she clinches victory.

Coco Gauff will face Caroline Garcia, seeded 27th, in the next round after Garcia defeated Naomi Osaka 7-6 (4), 7-5. Osaka, a four-time Grand Slam champion, showed strong form but fell short despite recent victories against top-ranked opponents.

In other women’s matches, top-ranked Iga Swiatek came from behind to defeat Linda Noskova, fifth-ranked Jessica Pegula advanced to the round of 16 for the third consecutive year by defeating Leylah Fernandez, and Sorana Cirstea beat Daria Kasatkina.

In men’s action, last year’s Miami Open runner-up and third-ranked Jannik Sinner rallied to defeat Tallon Griekspoor and advance to the fourth round. The match briefly paused due to light rain, but Sinner took control after the delay.
