MIAMI—Stefanos Tsitsipas walked into the Miami Open third round—and worked up a sweat anyway.

The second-seeded Greek advanced to the round of 32 when scheduled opponent Richard Gasquet withdrew with an ankle injury.

Tsitsipas, who lost to Carlos Alcaraz in Miami last year, will play either 27th-seeded Sebastian Baez or Chilean qualifier Cristian Garin for a spot in the round of 16.

After the walkover, Tsitsipas hit the practice court, worked up a sweat and drew a crowd hitting with Alex de Minaur.

Australian Open finalist Tsitsipas and Aussie de Minaur were practicing right next to a shirtless Carlos Alcaraz.

Their practice sessions drew a huge crowd of fans watching them hit before the noon scheduled start time on Hard Rock Stadium.

As a result of Tsitsipas’ walkover, the Lorenzo Musetti vs. Jiri Lehecka match, originally scheduled for Court 1, was moved to Hard Rock Stadium Court.
