The 2009 US Open champion is back to playing some of his best tennis in years after battling serious left wrist injuries that required three surgeries and threatened to curtail his career.He advances to face another big server, American John Isner, who overwhelmed South Korean Chung Hyeon 6-1, 6-4 in an afternoon match. McEnroe, a 1989 Roland Garros doubles victor and 1991 Australian Open singles semifinalist, said that Del Potro complained a lot during the Indian Wells about the crowd cheering after his first serve faults against Roger Federer, who counted on a big support from spectators. The American dominated a second set tiebreak, eventually prevailing 6-1, 7-6 (2) in just an hour and 23 minutes to reach the fourth Masters 1000 final of his career, and his first since the Paris Masters in November 2016.

Isner is playing Alexander Zverev in the Miami Open final in chase of his maiden Masters title. A precise backhand down the line put him 40-15 ahead and the second break point was converted with a delicate touch at the net.

But he gave Zverev only three break-point chances, and Isner's serve was at its best down the stretch.

John Isner produced a ruthless display during his semi-final victory against Juan Martin del Potro and underlined his undoubted power with a lightning forehand victor.

Mr Orengo, on Tuesday, said they pinned the court orders at "conspicuous places", saying no official was present to receive them. I need medical treatment. "I am sick... you can not force me to walk if I can not walk", he is shown as saying.

"I played extremely well". Notably, the 32-year-old, who will break into the top-10 of ATP rankings for the first time since 2014, came up with an attacking masterclass in the semi-final to end Juan Martin del Potro's unbeaten run this season.

"I think I missed more shots today than I did in the whole tournament", he said. "I'm toward the latter part of my career; this is the best moment of my career".

"It's not my main goal, but if I can improve it's always better", Del Potro said, as per Express. He's playing well so far this week, so it's going to be a hard match. "I am super fresh and ready to go for the final". Meanwhile, Azarenka plays her first semi-final in two years. You know, he's coming into this match winning so many matches.

Initially, in these meetings between the two, Zverev's 76.0% service points won percentage, and 95.2% service hold percentage would make it look like he has faced little pressure from Isner, and thus Zverev has held easily. Zverev then defeated recent Indian Wells semifinalist Borna Coric 6-4 6-4 to reach the semifinals where he had too much power for Pablo Carreno Busta, defeating the Spaniard 7-6 6-2.
