The World Number nine, John Isner denied the future Canadian tennis sorcerer, Felix Auger-Aliassime to claim the biggest match of his career in the semi-finals of the Miami Open 2019. The 18-year-old swiftly turned up to work upon his shortcomings soon after his defeat to the American giant.
His pivotal service games were an evil’s eye in today’s match which certainly denied the Canadian to step into his first ever Masters 1000 final. Four minutes past 3 PM, the Montreal lad lost his semifinal to Isner. At half past three, the Canadian spent some time with the press conference and around 4 PM, in less than an hour after losing his prestigious match, the 18-year-old, Felix Auger-Aliassime was witnessed practicing his serves on the court number 17 of the Miami Gardens.

This is kind of focus and devotion which the champions evidently exhibit towards their sport and these dedicated acts of perseverance differentiate victors from others on tour. Failure is clearly the best teacher in the world as after tumbling upon his serves at paramount moments of his semifinal, Felix Auger-Aliassime instantly decided to work upon his Achilles heel. To no one’s doubt, he is definitely the most promising player on the men’s tour.
In the opening set, Felix Auger-Aliassime broke Isner to love and took a 4-3 lead and that probably conveyed the Canadian’s grip on the set since happened to hold his next service game as well. However, while serving for the set, Felix Auger-Aliassime commits two doubles faults and unforced errors which presumably cost him heavy.
In the set, the Canadian took a 5-2 lead and at 5-3 the double fault curse had hit him back. Once again the juvenile, Felix Auger-Aliassime got an opportunity to serve for the set, but however, it was squandered with a double fault and forehand drive volley from Isner’s end.
“I just felt like, I don’t know, the nerves got to me a little,” Felix Auger-Aliassime said. “I wasn’t able to do like all the other matches and just focus on what I had to do, and it really got to me too hard.”
