Roger Federer explains why he chose tennis over football

Roger Federer moved into the Miami Open quarter-finals with a straight sets victory over Daniil Medvedev.

The 20-time Grand Slam Champion has defeated the sixth-seeded Anderson by 6-0,6-4 on Thursday night at Hard Rock Stadium.

There was a huge buzz surrounding the 18-year-old Canadian in the lead up to his first ever ATP Masters semi-final, a spotlight brightening through his brilliant run from qualifying to the last four.

Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada hits a forehead against John Isner of the the semi-final Friday of the Miami Open.

The women's final Saturday will match No 5 Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic against No 12 Ashleigh Barty of Australia.

Federer has won 100 career titles, 100 more than Shapovalov, and was looking forward to the pair's first match-up.

"I've just got to make sure I protect my serve very well and slice maybe sometimes, get into the rallies, and then find a way". I just couldn't serve from my part. "But I think I'm seeing the long term, and right now I'm just enjoying every day, enjoying every match, because you never know what's going to happen next".

The 12th-seeded Australian endured three rain delays on Thursday before ousting 21st-seeded Anett Kontaveit 6-3 6-3 in the first women's semi-final.

"I did the best I could", Auger-Aliassime said.

Federer is seeking to regain the title he won for a third time in 2017 having lost in the second round past year and took another step towards doing so in routine fashion on Wednesday. Federer and Shapovalov play Friday night at 7.

"He's got a great serve, so you go back to big-serve mentality to try to hold your own service games first before thinking about how to break Kevin". The Swiss player did not pick a specific title first: "A big, big goal of mine which I was able to achieve was to become world No". He also added, "back, he might have been 16, 17".

Isner, 15 years older and six inches (15.24 cm) taller than his rival, had only been broken twice in 48 service games at Miami and it wasn't long before the youngster realized what makes his booming serve so hard to break down.

"Holding at the end of the first set was very important, but in the second I played well and really went for my shots", said Federer, who won 81 percent of points on his first serve and finished the match on 85 percent.

The Canadian barely held serve in the third game of the second set by holing off an Isner break point and a pair of deuces.

"Night, it's flawless for me", Pliskova said.
