Somdev to play Starace in opening round at Miami

Somdev last week had a terrific run at the Indian Well Masters, where he reached the pre-quarterfinals. He beat World No.24 Marcos Baghdatis and World No.45 Xavier Malisse and stretched World No.1 Rafael Nadal in two tight sets before bowing out.

Somdev, who Monday touched his career-best ranking of 73, has never played Starace before. In the women's singles, India's Sania Mirza is a match away from entering the main draw after winning her first qualifying match against China's Xinyun Han 7-5, 6-0. She plays Czech Renata Voracova next.
