Felix Auger-Aliassime smiles after defeating Borna Coric during the quarterfinals of the Miami Open tennis tournament, Wednesday, March 27, 2019, in Miami Gardens, Fla.
Coric fended off that set point with a service victor and created a break chance of his own in the following game, denied by a serve&volley combo from Felix who won all five points on serve in the tie break, going 4-2 up when Borna hit a double fault and securing the opener after a backhand error from the Croat at 6-3. But the second really surprised me.
"Everyone is super excited back home".
"It was a tactical match by me", Federer said. "I think I'm seeing the long term, and right now I'm just enjoying, you know, enjoying every day, enjoying every match, because you never know what's gonna happen next".
"Similar to today, 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".
As for Federer, No. 5 in the world rankings, he will be looking for his fourth career Miami Open title. "I didn't feel like it was the focus or concentration".

Raonic ends lucky loser's run at Indian Wells
Kecmanovic was the first lucky loser to reach the quarter-finals at the tournament since it became a Masters 1000 event in 1990. I'm really just trying to take it one step at a time.
Now marked down more than ever as a future champion, Auger-Aliassime uses the word "grounded" a lot as he tries to maintain a semblance of normal teenage life.
Despite the disappointment etched all over Auger-Aliassime's face at the end, his run here will give him great confidence moving forward as he, and Shapovalov, aim to prove their Grand Slam credentials.
It continues an incredible run for Auger-Aliassime.
"It's wonderful - I said before the tournament the chances were I would not defend my title", Isner said.
That was his fifth match against top-20 opposition, and his fifth victory: a flawless record that no emerging male player in history has matched. For me, that's exciting because it's like a penalty shootout in (soccer), it's just in tennis.
"Since I started walking I was playing because my dad was coaching", he said. Maybe finish the points at the net a little bit more. I don't think anyone sees it as an extra pressure or anything.
Backed by his huge serve, the 33 year-old American fired his 21st ace to complete the victory after one hour and 53 minutes to book a spot in Sunday's final against Roger Federer.
"So I think I did well, and I'm very happy how I played".
