Isner faces Zverev for Miami Masters title

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 world No. 17 blasted his way to the final with a 6-1, 7-6 (2) win over Indian Wells champion Juan Martin del Potro on Friday.

He played an nearly flawless match to beat Juan Martin del Potro in the semifinals, and was just good enough against the fourth-seeded Zverev, a 20-year-old German who was bidding for his third Masters 1000 title in the past 12 months. 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.

John Isner punctuated his unexpected run to the Miami Open title with a surprising display of agility, dancing across the court while basking in a breakthrough.

The latest transition builds on earlier efforts to unite engineers who work on software with those that oversee hardware. This new division will also include its teams working on augmented and mixed reality technologies.

Actually, the opposite is the case, as he's faced 0.31 break point chances per game on his serve, which is actually fewer than Isner has in these head-to-heads (0.29). The big man had all the shots against Chung and del Potro, with the latter match being probably the best Isner has ever played. "I played bad from the baseline, but it's not easy against John".

"I have played a lot of big matches and not been able to get such a good start but I am playing some of the best tennis I have played in such a long time", Isner said.

"I was fortunate to get a del Potro who is very, very low on fuel", Isner said. If you think that the head-to-head meetings are more relevant than I consider, then Zverev would be value as the favourite, but if not, it might be better to look towards in-play options, if they develop, in what will nearly certainly be an extremely tight match. "He was better than me, and he deserved to win".

"I've just continued to keep playing better", Isner said. He's playing well so far this week, so it's going to be a hard match. "On the flip side of that, if I'm not too confident or doing the right things out there, I can be beaten by anybody".

Isner controlled his match from the outset and registered 39 winners.

Isner is seeking his first Masters title. "I stuck to it pretty well", Isner said. The only other players of this era to reach three finals without winning are Kei Nishikori and Gael Monfils. The 20-year-old German bested No. 16 Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain 7-6 (4), 6-2.

Isner beat three seeded players en route to the final, including No. 2 Marin Cilic.
