March 30, 2017 -- Miami, Florida
For the first time all tournament, Roger was pushed to 3-sets today in his Quarterfinal match up against Tomas Berdych. Fighting off two match points in a 3rd set tiebreaker, the Czech was playing fearless. Roger held on strong and weathered the storm winning the match 6-2, 3-6. 7-6 (6).
The Swiss star hadn't won a 3rd set in Miami since 2009. He also has won 7 straight tie-breakers since Indian Wells.
Next up for Roger will be one of the Next Gen players either Alexander Zverev or Nick Kyrgios.
