Daniil Medvedev Roger Federer is the greatest player of all time

He won a marathon ninth game of the final set to break Anderson for a 5-4 lead, then served it out at love. He cruised home from there. "You need a bit of help sometimes from your opponent", Federer said.

The day's delays saw Karolina Pliskova wrap up a 7-5, 6-1 victory over Simona Halep after 1 am. I just felt like, I don't know, the nerves got to me a little.

Barty will now try to notch the biggest title of her career when she faces the victor of the late semifinal between No.2 seed Simona Halep of Romania and No.5 seed Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic.

With Shapovalov taking on Federer and long time friend and compatriot Felix Auger-Aliassime, 18, facing defending champion John Isner in the semis, the tennis stars of tomorrow are beginning to prove their worth on the biggest of stages.

"The first set was very close, she played well but I just tried to be more aggressive, " said Pliskova after reaching her third semi-final of 2019. "But if I do it, I will be very proud".

Australia trounce Pakistan in third ODI, take unassailable lead of 3-0
For Pakistan , wickets have been hard to come by with the Pakistani bowlers so far having taken just four wickets in two matches. The other player to miss out is Mohammad Abbas, with Usman Shinwari and Junaid Khan getting their first games of the series.

Long rallies, short rallies, Federer was in control and in a comfort zone against the Medvedev who is 14 years junior. "It's like I caught a virus or something".

Mistakes doomed Halep, who lost to fifth-seeded Pliskova 7-5, 6-1.

The 12th-seeded Barty endured three rain delays on Thursday before ousting 21st-seeded Anett Kontaveit 6-3, 6-3 in the first women's semifinal. And now at 22, she's better than ever. She surrendered the ranking to Naomi Osaka in January, and didn't think she would have a chance to grab it back again this quickly.

While Federer is just getting into the quarters, defending Miami champion John Isner of the US became the first man in the field to reach the semifinals and did it in what's become his customary fashion.

The teenager will face defending champion John Isner after the American defeated Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-5).

"You still have kind of the legends, Roger, Rafa, still there on top, but you have a lot of newcomers with talent kind of gunning for them", he said "Every week it feels like someone new is making a breakthrough and playing well".

Isner won his only ATP Masters title a year ago.

Fellow Canadian teen Denis Shapovalov, a 19-year-old from Richmond Hill, Ont., was scheduled to play the Friday evening semifinal against No. 4 seed Roger Federer of Switzerland.

This will be their first meeting and one the Canadian, who will break into the top 20 when the rankings are released next week, can not wait for.

In his seven tournaments this year, Isner has played 47 sets - 24 of those going to tiebreaks.
