Cazaux was making his first-ever appearance at the Miami Open this year. He’s played in seven grand slams, making his Australian Open debut earlier this year.

He was one win away from a quarterfinals match against Daniil Medvedev in January, but after winning the first three rounds, he lost in straight sets to Hubert Hukacz, ranked No. 9 at the tournament.

It was his best performance at a grand slam, as he previously only got to the first-round in both the French and US Opens last year.
