Federer the greatest of all time - Kyrgios relishing Miami showdown

The 21-year-old will face fellow young gun Alexander Zverev, who earlier upset top-seeded birthday boy Stan Wawrinka 4-6 6-2 6-1 to blow open the top half of the draw.

"One bad game to start the second set and then it was tough for me", Wawrinka said.

Kyrgios, perhaps conscious of how often he goes viral for negative moments, responded to the crowd's congratulations by saying: "I want to see that on social media". "I was more the aggressor".

Recalling Berdych's 2010 victory over him in the fourth round, Federer said, "I felt like maybe this one I should have lost and maybe I should have won the one against him here in the night session years ago". "It worked out well for me", Zverev said courtside.

Fourth seed Roger Federer takes on 12th seed Nick Kyrgios in the Men's singles semi-final of Miami Masters 2017 at Crandon Park on Friday.

But, Federer's class proved the difference in the tie-breaks as he improved to 6-0 in his career meetings with Bautista Agut and advanced to a showdown against 10th-seeded Czech Tomas Berdych.

Roger Federer battles to a straight-sets victory over Roberto Bautista Agut to reach the quarter-finals of the Miami Open.

She will now play the tournament's second seed, Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, for a place in the final after she beat Mirjana Lucic-Baroni of Croatia 6-3, 6-4. Thus, the two young players maintained their serve and the tiebreaker was reached, in which the Australian squandered four match balls, which allowed Zverev to force the third set. In two waves of his racquet-or wand-Federer hit an unreturnable serve up the T followed by an ace to set up a match point of his own.

Federer, who has rolled back the years in 2017, came through 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (8-6) to claim his 17th win of the season.

He will face the victor of tonight's match between Nick Kyrgios and David Goffin. I know that I can't bring 75 or 80 per cent of my game.

Rafa Nadal beat Nicolas Mahut 6-4 7-6 and faces American Jack Sock, who was a 6-2 6-1 victor against compatriot Jared Donaldson.

Next up for Nadal is American Jack Sock, while Nishikori meets Italian Fabio Fognini.

He broke to start the second set when 14th seed Bautista Agut sent an overhead long to end an eight-minute first game, only for Federer to hand back that advantage.
