March 29, 2019 -- Miami, FL Experience prevailed over youth in both semifinals at the Miami Open on Friday. After John Isner took out the Canadian teen, Felix Auger-Aliassime to seal his final spot in Miami, Roger later faced another young Canadian, Denis Shapovalov, in the second semifinal. Looking nervous against the veteran, Roger proved too strong and confident and took the match routinely 6-2, 6-4. He reaches his 50th Masters 1000 final, which is the most of any ATP player. He will face John Isner for the chance to win his 28th Masters 1000 title and his 101st career title. “I enjoyed it. I think I played very well. I had to. Because I think when you let Denis play, he's got some serious power, and he gets rhythm going. He can really put you in uncomfortable situations,” Roger said. “So I think I did well, and I'm very happy how I played.”
