Federer on track for fourth Miami title

Federer on track for fourth Miami title

Unlike the Marlins, who were able to close their stadium roof and host Opening Day on Thursday, Miami Open executives spent the day staring at weather maps, scrambling, and shuffling the schedule.

The women's final Saturday will match No. 5 Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic against No. 12 Ashleigh Barty of Australia.

Barty defeated Halep in their last encounter, a straight sets win in Sydney in January, while she has a 2-2 career record against Pliskova.

Shapovalov is one of two Canadian teenagers in the semis, with 18-year-old Felix Auger-Aliassime to play defending champion John Isner in the daytime, before Federer and Shapovalov face off under lights.

Don't miss this great deal.

South African Anderson broke the Federer serve to level at 3-3 but a fifth break for Federer helped the 20-time grand slam champion serve out the match after one hour and 25 minutes.

Shapovalov enters Friday night searching for his first career singles title.

"I hit it late and that's why it went short", the veteran said.

"It's really great to see him doing well. Obviously, it's going to be a hard match".

The Swiss plays Canadian starlet Denis Shapovalov, 19, in what will be a first meeting between the pair on Friday for a place in Sunday's final. "They'll carry the game when we're long gone".

"It's a match up I have been looking forward to my whole life, a high stakes match against your idol".

"I did the best I could", Auger-Aliassime said.

In addition to 37 ATP Tour events and the US Open available exclusively on Prime Video with a Prime membership, Prime members in the United Kingdom who subscribe to Eurosport Player through Prime Video Channels for an additional £6.99 per month (following a 7-day free trial) will also benefit from full coverage of the French Open, and daily highlights and live coverage from the men's and women's finals of Wimbledon in 2019. How good is he going to get?

"I want to play well for the rest of the year, but again, just focus on the daily work".

"It doesn't mean everything to get back to number one". He has been improving ever since with signature wins over DelPotro and Tomas Berdych.

Shapovalov is good friends with Tiafoe, and has gotten to know Auger-Aliassime.

"It's an exciting draw for John and for myself here, playing these young guys".

Federer agrees. He said the rise of the new generation reminds him of the 2001 ATP campaign called "New Balls Please", which highlighted Federer, Andy Roddick, Gustavo Kuerten, Lleyton Hewitt, Tommy Haas and Marat Safin. The Swiss player, who cheers for FC Basel, said: "I had to sort of take a decision, soccer or tennis".
