Medvedev closes in on No. 1 ranking; Osaka to Miami semis


AP Sports Writer

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Daniil Medvedev is one win away from returning to No. 1. The top-seeded Medvedev shook off a slow start and reached the quarterfinals of the Miami Open by defeating Jenson Brooksby of the U.S. 7-5, 6-1. Medvedev has yet to drop a set in his three Miami matches. He’ll face No. 8 seed and defending Miami champion Hubert Hurkacz in the quarters. If Medvedev prevails there he’ll be assured of supplanting Novak Djokovic and returning to No. 1 in the world. In the women’s draw, Naomi Osaka beat Danielle Collins in straight sets to reach the semifinals. Osaka hasn’t won a title since last year’s Australian Open.
