Congrats Fed. Certainly didn't expect a win here in Miami after disappointing loss to Thiem. May be first time in his career he has played better in Miami than IW. His return must be appreciated as well. 6-0 6-4 against Kandyman, 6-1 6-4 against Isner and many 6-2/6-3 sets in this tournament as well.

His first big title since AO 2018, the streak of losing Masters final is over now. This success should serve as confidence booster for him. And after showing the world he is not done yet, the goal really should be Wimbledon now.

How Federer can win Miami in such dominant fashion and yet continues to struggle at USO every year? Conditions here are certainly slower.
2017 - back injury in Montreal screwed up his USO form/chances. Else would've been the favorite.
2018 - lost his 1st match at Miami and 4th match at the USO. had issues with his hand since grass season in 18 - that we found about only later.

Felt bad seeing Izzy in pain..
Sorry for all the hate Mr. Servebot.
It's not your problem that I don't have the eyes to appreciate your beauty.
Congo Rog.
Love the shoutout to Mirka and the kids.
Keep playing well.
Go conquer the dirt you beautiful ever-giving investment.
Rog actually had a recent interview where he praised Isner's game and laid out his strategy to deal with it. Looks like it worked!

What counts as conquering the dirt? Reaching a SF?

I'm only sad that we have to wait 5 weeks to see Fed play again.

He's been in such remarkably good form the past 3 tournaments, it'll be a real shame if he cools down now.

Don't be so greedy.
It should be good for him.
Remember his 6 month hiatus and the results that followed?

It can’t believe that Fed turned this tourney around like he did. Fed looked absolutely terrible in the first match against Albot. I thought Albot was going pull a Kokkinakis and win. By the time he got to Kandy, he was clicking on all 8 cylinders. Fed wrecked Medvedev, Kandy and Shapovalov.

Fed won 33 of his 35 service points against Isner . At one point late in the 2nd set, Fed was only 4/4 at the net.
