The 18-year-old Canadian continued his impressive start to the 2019 ATP Tour season by reaching his first ATP Masters 1000 semi-final at the Miami Open presented by Itau. Auger-Aliassime, who now owns a 14-7 tour-level record this season, defeated three seeded opponents en route to the last four in Florida.

The #NextGenATP Canadian overcame 29th seed Marton Fucsovics in the second round and also beat 17th seed Nikoloz Basilashvili and 11th-seeded Borna Coric in back-to-back matches, before falling to defending champion John Isner in straight sets. Auger-Aliassime rises 24 places to a career-high No. 33 in the ATP Rankings.

No. 4 Roger Federer, +1
After a run to the BNP Paribas Open final in Indian Wells (l. to Thiem), Roger Federer completed a successful month by lifting his 101st tour-level trophy at the Miami Open presented by Itau. After recovering from a set down to beat Radu Albot in his opening match, Federer completed straight-sets wins over Filip Krajinovic, Daniil Medvedev, Kevin Anderson, Denis Shapovalov and John Isner to triumph in Miami for the fourth time.
