Federer vs Isner in Miami final

Roger Federer cruised into his fifth Miami Open final with an impressive 6-2 6-4 victory against Denis Shapovalov.

Federer was dominant in service and broke three times to set up a final with John Isner, who beat Felix Auger-Aliassime 7-6(3) 7-6(4).

"I enjoyed it. I think I played very well. I had to," Federer told reporters. "Because I think when you let Denis play, he's got some serious power, and he gets rhythm going. He can really put you in uncomfortable situations.

"So I think I did well, and I'm very happy how I played."

Denis Shapovalov defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(3) at the Miami Open 2019.

Denis Shapovalov advanced to the US Open second round when Felix Auger-Aliassime retied.

Shapovalov was leading 7-5, 5-7, 4-1.

They met at the net and Shapovalov rubbed Auger-Aliassime's head as tears began to fall. He consoled his buddy. He told him not to worry about having to stop while trailing in the third set because of heat exhaustion. This was, after all, merely a first-round meeting. One day, Shapovalov assured Auger-Aliassime, they'll square off again at Flushing Meadows - for the championship.

Denis Shapovalov speaks to the media after his 0-6, 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 defeat against Benoit Paire

Q. What are you most disappointed about?
DENIS SHAPOVALOV: Losing.

Q. Any particular thing about the way the match went and your chances and set point in the fourth set, Paire's ball on the line?
DENIS SHAPOVALOV: No, it was too good. He played a very good match and I didn't play so well today. He deserved to win clearly today.

I had all the momentum after the first set, and I blew that. After that, he played really well and I wasn't able to play well.

Denis Shapovalov speaks to the media after his 6-3, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4 win against Jeremy Chardy

Q. You were saying to us a few days ago that you don't mind being the underdog and not being the favorite, and even enjoy that. That's what happen today? You played your best tennis?
DENIS SHAPOVALOV: Yeah, definitely. Against Jeremy, I knew it was going to be a very difficult match coming into it. He's played exceptional tennis on grass this season, so, yeah, I knew it was going to be difficult.

I thought during the match I had a lot of chances that actually I didn't convert but I stayed calm and waited for the right moments.

Yeah, surely enough I got them, a big set was the third set where, you know, it kind of gave me the break in the set at the end. But I was putting a lot of pressure on all of his service games. So I think I played him really well.
