John Isner has become the first American tennis player who reached the semi-finals of the strong tournament in Miami since 2011 onwards (Mardy Fish). This happened after the giant won with 2: 0 sets over Kei Nishikori in different parts 6:4, 6:3.
This is the second consecutive victory over a player of Top 10 for Isnar, who earlier in the week "took the scalp" also of Milos Raonic after 3-tiebreak sets. The world No24 already has an exceptional record of 6 wins and 0 losses in the quarterfinals of the "Masters 1000" series.
In contention for a place in the final the tall American will face Novak Djokovic.
