Barty ousts Kontaveit to reach Miami Open final

Barty ousts Kontaveit to reach Miami Open final

The young gun has a record which would be the envy of many tour veterans but after beating world no. 13 Borna Coric 7-6 6-2, he has reached the semi finals of the Miami Open. "I'll try to get as many balls back as possible". But the second really surprised me.

About the Federer match, Shapovalov admitted: "I started off a little bit tight".

At half past three, the Canadian spent some time with the press conference and around 4 PM, in less than an hour after losing his prestigious match, the 18-year-old, Felix Auger-Aliassime was witnessed practicing his serves on the court number 17 of the Miami Gardens. "It's great to hear all these good comments from them".

"I was just thinking in the locker room how far back we go, and from the national groupings when we were eight and nine years old, so it's so insane to see how far we have come". He and Boric exchanged baseline rallies throughout the opening set and Felix was often seen taking charge.

Roger Federer of Switzerland returns a shot back to Denis Shapovalov of Canada (not pictured) during the menÕs semifinal at the Miami Open at Miami Open Tennis Complex. Even the first serve, if you put it in, you don't have to hit the second serve. "It's just that point in the ATP, you know, you still have kind of the legends, you know, Rog, Rafa, still there on top, but you have a lot of newcomers with talent kind of gunning for them". I think I will do at the end of the tournament.

While there's ongoing speculation about which of the two will eventually turn out to be the better player, what many don't dispute is the potential of Shapovalov and Auger-Aliassime to reach the top five in the rankings and to win Grand Slam titles. "I can not say enough good things about him".

Away from the ever-brightening spotlight, Auger-Aliassime always had confidence in himself.

Bayer Shares Plummet Upon Verdict That Roundup Caused Man's Cancer
Bayer now faces some 11,000 suits from cancer patients and their families, and its second loss paints a dire picture. Litzenburg said he and other attorneys have more than 4,000 similar cases awaiting trial in various state courts.

While the matches played out differently, the common thread for Shapovalov and Auger-Aliassime was nerves.

John Isner is next up for Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Federer said he's enjoying seeing the younger players start to make their mark.

Auger-Aliassime will now have a day off before facing Isner, with Kevin Anderson and Roger Federer and fellow young guns 21-year-old Frances Tiafoe and countryman Dennis Shapovalov, 19, playing in quarter-finals tomorrow.

The towering 6-foot-10 Isner overpowered Auger-Aliassime in the second tie breaker to win the match, hammering three consecutive aces, with the last one clocked at a match-high 140 miles per hour. "I think I have been just improving in the last couple of weeks. I don't think he has any weaknesses".

"It's unbelievable to be back in the final", said Isner, who hit 32 winners compared to 20 by Auger-Aliassime.

In women's play, Simona Halep came back from a 1-5 deficit in the second set to stop Qiang Wang, 6-4, 7-5 to reach the final four of Miami. "I think, yeah, a lot of belief, a lot of positive things happening, and I think it's just pushing us".
