  • Juan Martin Del Potro

Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina will face up to Milos Raonic of Canada in the Miami Open quarterfinals after both players beat respective rivals in the fourth round on Tuesday. He got it from the most unlikely of sources, an injury in his first-round match against Jiri Vesely. Zverev defeated Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta in straight sets 7-6, 6-2.

"I couldn't have scripted this".

He played an nearly flawless semifinal to beat Juan Martin del Potro, and was just good enough against the fourth-seeded Zverev, a precocious 20-year-old German who was bidding for his third Masters 1000 title in the past 12 months. Isner holds the advantage over Monfils in match win percentage in Masters, as the Frenchman's career has been plagued with injuries and inconsistency.

No. 20 seed Raonic continued his return to full fitness and form when he maintained his flawless record over Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 before securing the last eight spot.

"It's up to me now to keep pushing forward", he said. "I made some winners; made some backhand winners finally in the match and found my rhythm", said Zverev, reflecting on the tiebreak.

After a slow start to the year, John Isner is back on top.

"It'll be a hard match". Their second match, which was also contested in Miami, was a rather closer affair with Zverev winning 6-7 7-6 7-6.

"It was unique, that someone I'm so much older than, and had practiced with when he was a kid, is now one of the best players in the world", Isner said.

Winning at any level is very, very important, and it gives you confidence and gives you those match wins under your belt.' He also added. He couldn't shake a tendency to get tight and tentative on the court; it was getting worse as time went on.

The German, whose frustrations boiled over when he smashed his racket on the ground after that critical break, proved his billing as one of stars of the future by making his third Masters final and now heads to Spain where Germany play in the quarter-final of the Davis Cup. "I'm at the latter part of my career, and this was the best moment of my career, and you guys made that possible". "After each match I won, we would have another dinner, have another dinner, have another dinner and kept hammering that point, just be loose, and I will be a force if I can play freely, and I was able to do that".

He smacked consecutive aces to reach 6-all, and made all four first serves in the tiebreaker, including aces of 138 and 139 miles per hour. "Zverev is a big server like Isner, but standing 4 inches shorter than the 6'10" Isner, plays a fairly different game. When he has a good day, he has everything to win a title like this. "He was better than me, and he deserved to win".

"I think I missed more shots today than I did the whole tournament".

Zverev leads 3-0 over Isner but both Masters meetings previous year went the distance.
