At the tie of writing there was a rain delay over in Miami at the Master’s 1000 Series at the Hard Rock complex but there were some matches finished earlier and the shock of the tournament so far occurred in one of them. Top-seed and five-time winner Djokovic crashed out against twenty second seed who showed real grit and quality to fight back from losing the first set 6-1. Bautista Agut’s reward for beating Fedrerer is a potentially tougher match against the red-hot reigning champion and seventh seed Isner in the quarter finals after the American dashed British hopes beating Edmunds in straight sets.

Young Canadian qualifier Auger Alliassime continued his remarkable run going by beating the in from seventeenth seed Basilashvil to reach his first Master’s Series quarter final. Sixth seed Anderson looks like he’s recovering from an early season slump as he’s through to the quarter finals and is waiting to meet the winner of the Medvedev and Federer delayed fourth round match.

The other fourth round delayed matches waiting to be completed were between American and eighteenth seed Taifoe who was a set up against Belgium number one Goffin and finally the fourth-round match waiting to be completed was a potential classic between two of the games huge NextGen stars eight Tsitsipas and twentieth seed Shapavalov.
