Defending champ Isner back in Miami Open final

Daniil Medvedev Roger Federer is the greatest player of all time

The Swiss player, who cheers for FC Basel, said: "I had to sort of take a decision, soccer or tennis".

Auger-Aliassime was particularly frustrated with one game in the first set when he double-faulted three times while serving with a 5-4 edge.

"I know we had to wait around but it was an opportunity to drink some coffee and watch the golf, so I was relaxed", said Barty.

"Are you kidding?" a commentator exclaimed as Federer clinched the point two shots later.

A pair of double faults by Auger-Aliassime helped give Isner a break late in the first and tied the set at 5-5.

'It's like I caught a virus or something, ' he said.

Auger-Aliassime had been 5-0 previously against Top 20 opponents, and was the youngest male semifinalist in the tournament's 35-year history. We have become very popular not just as athletes but then also outside it being ambassadors of different brands and it's nice to be able to jump in and out of character of just playing tennis and honestly becomes a bit boring but you are very interested in doing some media, doing sponsors, doing practice, having a family life.

The seventh-seeded American thumped 25 aces to see off the Spaniard and will next face either 18-year-old Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime or defensive baseliner Borna Coric, who play their quarter-final in the night session on Wednesday.

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

"If you beat me at Wimbledon, you've got my attention", Federer said. However, Federer struggled in the following game to hold after he was trailing 0-40.

"I was just thinking in the locker room how far back we go, from the national groupings when we were eight and nine years old, so it's so insane to see how far we have come".

The 27-year-old from Romania was 5-1 down in the second set but fought back by winning six consecutive games. After waiting about an hour for the rain to stop and the court to be dried, she needed only four more minutes of play and finished out the match at 1:11 a.m. - or 6:11 a.m. Friday in her native Czech Republic; 7:11 a.m. Friday in Halep's native Romania.

Auger-Aliassime was a qualifier at the tournament and entered the event ranked No. 57 in the world rankings. Start in Monte Carlo and - yeah, obviously my goals and my expectations, maybe not my expectations, but I'm aiming high. "But I think I'm feeling really good".

"It's incredible", the 33-year-old told the crowd after his victory. "I am so happy to be one match away from defending the title".

Their match finally resumed and Barty, the 12 seed and a former cricket player, advanced to Saturday's final with a 6-3, 6-3 win.
