Federer, Anderson Advance To 4th Round In Miami

"He's clever how he plays the court because he can play it up and down, and he's unusual when he plays from back", said the Swiss, who hit 14 aces and won an impressive 74% of points on his first serve.

Federer was stunned by Thanasi Kokkinakis in his opening match of the Miami Open past year and another early exit was beckoning when he dropped the first set on Saturday.

His next opponent, who is at a career-high ranking of 15th, saw off American Reilly Opelka 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-0) on Monday and has won four ATP hard-court titles, including three since last August. "Winning these type of matches against a top 10 player like "Sascha" is a gift", he said. Next, Roger Federer will take on the Russian Daniil Medvedev in the pre-quarters of the Florida Masters.

Albot could not convert a break point in the deciding set tied at 3-3, and the Swiss took command from there to wrap up the match. "I definitely think Radu played a great match, it was really tough and I struggled early on", admitted Federer, a three time Miami Open champion. The Australian will meet 2018 Wimbledon finalist Kevin Anderson next. I'm happy with how the elbow responded. After a brilliant one handed backhand down the line from Federer clipped the line, Albot hit long once more and that gave Federer the break and opportunity to serve out for the match and move into the next round and a meeting with the 103rd-ranked Krajinovic.

Rudy Giuliani: Mueller probe was 'bad' for the country
Nadler said the report "does not amount to a so-called total exoneration" of the president, who had said as much in a tweet . Comey in 2017 amid the FBI's Russian Federation investigation that was a precursor to Mueller's special counsel appointment.

Czech Kvitova, whose knife-wielding attacker in 2016 - 33-year-old Radim Zondra - was sentenced to eight years in prison yesterday, will play Australian Ashleigh Barty today after beating France's Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-3.

Tsitsipas eased past Leonardo Mayer 6-4, 6-4 while Shapovalov ousted Andrey Rublev 6-4, 7-6 (5).

Andreescu was 1-6 0-2 down before a shoulder injury ruined her chances of another run to the finals.

Anderson mixed 13 aces of his own with just one double-fault to seal a 6-4 7-6 (6) victory over Portuguese Sousa earlier on Monday.
