Fernando Gonzalez of Chile will be looking to make a successful comeback to the tour at the ATP Masters 1000 event in Key Biscayne Miami this week. Gonzalez missed last week’s event in Indian Wells California last week so that he could spend time with the people of his country who had been affected by a catastrophic earthquake. Miami is a place that holds special memories for Fernando Gonzalez he won his only match with the legendary American Pete Sampras at that venue back in 2002. Gonzalez reached the 4th round at the Australian Open before losing to Andy Roddick in an epic 5 set match. It will be difficult for Fernando Gonzalez to win the title this week given the strength of the draw in Key Biscayne. Andy Murray is the defending champion in Key Biscayne, last year the Scot won the title when he defeated Novak Djokovic in the final.
