Alcaraz Gets Off To Winning Start In Miami Open Title Defence

World number one Carlos Alcaraz kicked off his title defence at the Miami Open with a resounding victory.

The Spaniard beat Argentine Facundo Bagnis 6-0 6-2 to extend his head-to-head record against the clay-court specialist to 4-0.

It only took the 19-year-old US Open champion 65 minutes as he bagelled Bagnis in the first set before easing his way through the second to seal victory.

"I knew that I needed to be focused for my first match," said Alcaraz who won the Indian Wells title last week.

"To start a new tournament is never easy. 

"I have to be ready to get used to these new conditions, but I was really focused on the match from the beginning and I'm happy with the way that I played."

Alcaraz will next meet Dusan Lajovic or No. 30 seed Maxime Cressy in the third round as he bids to retain his Miami title.
