The Miami Open 2021, ATP and WTA combined event, will be remembered for the absence of many stars, including the Big Three Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic among the men, and Serena Williams among the women.
However, there will be young ATPs such as Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev and Jannik Sinner and also many women’s stars such as world no.1 Ashleigh Barty, Naomi Osaka, Simona Halep and Iga Swiatek.
Hubert Hurkacz made the impossible, eliminating Andrey Rublev – who at that point was favorite for the final victory – and qualifying for the final of the Miami Open 2021. The 24-year-old Polish tennis player will meet the young Italian talent Jannik Sinner, who, after a thrilling match lasting three sets, knocked out Spanish expert Roberto Bautista, becoming the third under-20 player to reach the final of the tournament in Florida, after Andre Agassi, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
Below the highlights of the semifinals.
