Fourth-seeded Roger Federer was set to take the Hard Rock Stadium court for a round-of-16 match against No. 13 Daniil Medvedev when rain washed them out on Tuesday night in Miami Gardens, Florida.

The match was officially postponed until Wednesday and will not be played before 3 p.m. ET.

With No. 1 Novak Djokovic losing to No. 22 Roberto Bautista Agut earlier Tuesday, Federer is the highest remaining seed in the tournament. Prior to Miami, Federer fell to Dominic Thiem in the finals of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, on March 17.

Coming in, Federer held a 2-0 career head-to-head record over the 23-year-old Russian. Both matchups came last year.

The winner will face sixth-seeded South African Kevin Anderson, who defeated Jordan Thompson in straight sets in his round-of-16 match, in the quarterfinals.
