"But I knew the second set would be much tougher".

"It's going to be a completely different match".

"I will go home now, eat some barbeque, spend time with friends and not talk about tennis for the next few weeks". I don't have any skills for that. "I think he was better for today".


Mindful of that small margin for error when he lost serve to fall behind 5-4 in the final set, Zverev let his frustration boil over.

Zverev eased past Pablo Carreno Busta 7-6 (4), 6-2 in his semi-final outing Saturday in Miami.

The German, who won five ATP World Tour titles previous year, leaving him second only to Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, can begin his 2018 collection in some style if he maintains his 100% record against John Isner, who is based in Florida.

The Miami Open hasn't been a massively successful tournament for Isner in the past, with his semifinal showing in 2015 being the only time he's been further than the fourth round, and he was certainly the underdog against del Potro, who came into the tournament fresh of titles in Acapulco and Indian Wells. "Hopefully, I can continue so in the final, and we'll see how that goes".

He couldn't be playing better, or serving better, right now. "But today John played better".


Overall, Zverev said, "I'm happy where I am at right now now". I am looking forward to it.

"I put on about four kg". "Not many players can return his serves".

If he wins 88 percent of his first-service points again, he will move to 4-0. Though it would not be unreasonable to expect a slight drop in performance from Isner, so well has he been playing that he should still have enough to lift his first ever Masters 1000 title.

"Sascha, also, I mean, he's the best young player this game has". "I made some winners; made some backhand winners finally in the match and found my rhythm", said Zverev, reflecting on the tiebreak. The 20-year-old hit 42 unforced errors in an effort to blow Svitolina off the court, but offset that with an impressive 44 winners.
