Jeremy Chardy set a second-round match-up with three-time Sony Open Tennis champion Novak Djokovic after edging Juan Monaco 7-5, 3-6, 7-6(5) on Wednesday in Miami. The Frenchman fired 22 aces as he advanced in two hours and 39 minutes and will need to overturn a 0-7 FedEx ATP Head2Head record against last week’s BNP Paribas Open champion Djokovic if he is to reach the third round.

Adrian Mannarino upset 2008 champion Nikolay Davydenko 6-4, 7-5. The Frenchman earned a second-round clash with 11th-seeded countryman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga as he prevailed in 83 minutes, breaking serve four times.

Julien Benneteau joined his countrymen in the second round as he came back to defeat British wild card Kyle Edmund 6-7(2), 6-3, 6-2. Benneteau goes on to meet No. 21 seed Ernests Gulbis of Latvia. Both Benneteau and Gulbis reached the quarter-finals last week in Indian Wells. Benneteau lost to eventual champion Novak Djokovic, while Gulbis fell to John Isner.

Austrian qualifier Dominic Thiem, who reached the third round last week on his ATP World Tour Masters 1000 debut (l. to Benneteau), advanced with a 7-6(6), 6-4 win over Czech Lukas Rosol.

A pair of Polish contenders were beaten as Matthew Ebden defeated Lukasz Kubot 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, while Albert Montanes edged Michal Przysiezny 5-7, 7-6(5), 6-3. Australian Ebden will take on defending champion Andy Murray, while Montanes of Spain goes on to face 15th seed Grigor Dimitrov.

Fourth seed David Ferrer will open his campaign against Teymuraz Gabashvili after the Russian ousted Marcel Granollers 6-4, 6-3.
