Roger Federer was regularly throwing racket in 1999 says opponent

"I'm feeling really good", Federer said.

"It was tough because I know he keeps going and if you get passive you need to come up with a good passing shot".

But serving to level the match, the Canadian surrendered his third double fault and when Auger-Aliassime netted a straightforward volley, the match was back on serve and destined for another tie-breaker. "I just felt really comfortable out there from the first balls", Auger-Aliassime said. "He's got a great serve, so you go back to big-serve mentality to try to hold your own service games first before thinking about how to break Kevin", Federer said.

A golden opportunity arose at 2-3 only for Isner to save three break points, but Auger-Aliassime regrouped and managed to finally lead 4-3. "It's like I caught a virus or something".

Auger-Aliassime had never played in Miami before, and now he becomes the youngest semifinalist in tournament history, younger than Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras ever were when they reached this stage. And it sets him up against the big man Isner on Friday.

The 19-year-old Canadian advanced to the semifinals with a three-set victory over Frances Tiafoe on Thursday. It was the first tiebreak Auger-Aliassime lost in the tournament. I just felt like, I don't know, the nerves got to me a little. 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.

Federer and Medvedev split the first eight games, and then things turned quickly.

Auger-Aliassime was a qualifier at the tournament and entered the event ranked No. 57 in the world rankings.

Halep's recovery from 1-5 down in the second set showed the kind of mental toughness displayed by only the very best and the Romanian is looking in good shape to land her first Miami title, even if she is not overly consumed about the prospect of reclaiming the No. 1 tag. "That's not what I wanted to do but maybe what it took".

"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. I think all the Canadian players from the young kids to Denis and Bianca and I, there is a lot of belief right now, so it's great to see". 'To play in the stadium - the Super Bowl will be here next year - it's pretty wonderful'.

"It's wonderful", the 33-year-old told the crowd after his victory. Look, I'm happy he's playing again after his injury.
