Severe downpours in Florida wreaked havoc on the Miami Open schedule, with Andy Murray and Jannik Sinner among a host of players who had their second-round matches suspended due to rain.

Murray will resume play on Saturday against Argentina’s Tomas Etcheverry with the score tied at 3-3 in the first set.

Australian Open champion Sinner’s first set against fellow Italian Andrea Vavassori was on serve after five games, while Canada’s Denis Shapovalov held a 2-1 advantage after an early break in his first set with Greek 10th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas.

In Friday’s completed matches, fifth seed Andrey Rublev was upset 6-4 6-4 by Tomas Machac of the Czech Republic while 14th seed Ugo Humbert defeated Botic van de Zandschulp 6-4 6-3.

Everything you need to know about Murray v Etcheverry

Andy Murray is back on court at the Miami Open when he battles his Australian Open conqueror Tomas Martin Etcheverry.

Murray produced a battling performance to come back from a set behind to beat Matteo Berrettini, before scribbling on a courtside camera that there was “life in the old dog yet”.

The Italian, a Wimbledon finalist three years ago, was making his return to action after injury and struggled with dizzy spells later in the contest, allowing the Scot to secure a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 win.

It leaves Murray again seeking his first third round appearance of the year having failed to back up his previous three victories on tour with a second win.

The 36-year-old has enjoyed the Florida hard courts before, twice winning the tournament in 2009 and 2013. But a deep run this year will likely require a hard-fought win over the ever-improving Etcheverry, seeded 29th.
