Roger Federer and Caroline Wozniacki rolled through the first few matches of the Miami Open, never facing any significant challenges.

The fourth-seeded Federer fought off two match points before beating No10 Tomas Berdych 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (6) in a quarterfinal matchup. Wozniacki rallied with far less drama, the No12 seed topping second-seeded Karolina Pliskova 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 to reach the final at Key Biscayne for the first time in her 10 appearances at the tournament.
