John Isner targets Miami Open title with a strong serve

John Isner stuns Juan Martin del Potro to meet Alexander Zverev in Miami Open final

Playing some of his best tennis, John Isner put a halt to Juan Martin del Potro's 15-match win streak, overpowering the Argentine 6-1, 7-6 (2) to reach his first career Miami Masters final.

Isner will now face the victor of the other semi-final between Pablo Carreno Busta and Alexander Zverev as he looks to win a first title since victory at the Atlanta Open in July last year, the 32-year-old having sealed his place as the top American player in the rankings by reaching the Miami showpiece.

Zverev has won two Masters Series title, both previous year - in Roma and Canada.

Bosses are also said to be considering not discussing the matter at all, and get Dec to continue with the show as normal. And he waited until the very end of the show to express his heartfelt thanks for the support the audience had given him.

The American wasted no time in breaking Del Potro and racing into a 3-0 lead while sending down five aces on his own serve to brilliantly wrap up the first set in just 27 minutes.

John Isner finished off the Miami Open in a quick way Sunday.

Isner gives his coach, David Macpherson, some kudos for a recent turnaround in play. Not only has Zverev faced more break points overall in their meetings, he's also faced more in two of their three matches, so it is likely that there was a large dose of variance and fine margins in Zverev's head-to-head triumphs. "I think today was even my best match". I know better than anyone what it's costing me, all the days there is something new but I don't want to stop.

Now we'll bring so many trophies that I can bring in to this club. I think if he stayed he would've played more next year. I was born old, now I will die young, this is for sure.

"I was just ready for this moment", Isner said in a TV interview just after the match ended. "There's no other way to play the point, especially for me, because I can't really run from side to side". "I played well. I did a good tournament, and I go home with many things to celebrate", Del Potro said.

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. The second semifinal, between the No. 4-seeded Zverev of Germany and No. 16 Carreno Busta of Spain, is scheduled for tonight. I am actually quite happy that he is in the final. "Not many players can return his serves".

The German secured his first top-20 victory of the season in what's been a slow start to the year by his high standards to set up an intriguing tie with Borna Coric. "I made some winners; made some backhand winners finally in the match and found my rhythm", said Zverev, reflecting on the tiebreak.

Weather warning of snow issued for Nottinghamshire over Easter
Accumulations of several centimetres are possible, especially over hills, and there is a chance of drifting in strong winds. High snow drifts loomed over many roads including those alongside Pottal Pool Road on the Chase.

When Isner meets up with Alexander Zverev for the title on Stadium Court at the Crandon Tennis Center on Key Biscayne at 1 p.m. Sunday, he is hoping to launch some of those overpowering serves at Zverev.
