With the Miami Open officially getting underway on March 20, here is a sneak peak of Canada’s finest preparing for the tournament.

Milos Raonic is returning to the tennis court for the first time since defeating Juan Marin del Potro in the Delray Beach semifinals. Raonic suffered a hamstring injury scare following that match and withdrew from the final as well as Indian Wells to properly treat the injury. After making the quarterfinals in 2016, Raonic will seek to do even better this year.

After an early loss in Indian Wells, Genie Bouchard traveled to Miami to begin training again. The Canadian will be unseeded and faces potential dangerous opponents in the early rounds, so she’s making sure to stay in top physical shape.

Daniel Nestor has won the Miami Open doubles title once before and finished runner-up twice. Before Nestor parts for the East Coast, he trained with another legend of the game – Roger Federer. Federer went on to defeat Rafael Nadal after having a hit with Nestor in Indian Wells. Coincidence? (Maybe…)

It is still unconfirmed if Vasek Pospisil – who beat World No. 1 Andy Murray at Indian Wells – will continue his fine tournament form in Miami, but what is known is that he continues to post excellent videos on his YouTube channel. If you haven’t already checked out Vasek’s video diaries, click here.

Gabriela Dabrowski is en route to Miami but not before doing some fun promotions among other WTA stars in Indian Wells. Could there be a Hingis-Dabrowski team in the future?
