Miami Open Masters 2016 Results (Wednesday) final score result, brackets and schedule game matchup. The 2016 Miami Open in Key Biscayne, Florida, is beginning to wind down, with the semifinals in the women’s singles draw now complete and the men’s draw shifting over to the semis Wednesday.
Novak Djokovic defeated Tomas Berdych for a semifinal berth, while Angelique Kerber and Victoria Azarenka each took one step closer to the final as well.
Updated brackets for the men’s singles and women’s singles tournaments are available on the Miami Open’s official website.
Keys enjoyed a strong run in Key Biscayne before Wednesday, but she was thoroughly outclassed by Kerber, who needed a little over an hour to put away the 21-year-old American.
Keys’ offensive, power-based style played right into the hands of Kerber, whose best work comes on the counterattack. She was more than capable of taking Keys’ best shots and coming through unscathed. The second-seeded German also completely neutralized the American’s serve.
In her wins over Roberta Vinci and Irina-Camelia Begu, Keys won a combined 80 percent of her first-service points and 55 percent of her second-service points. Those figures fell to 64 percent and 28 percent, respectively, in the quarterfinals. She also suffered more service breaks (four) than break-point opportunities allowed (three) against Vinci and Begu.
With Serena Williams struggling in a big way, a strong argument could be made that Kerber is the best women’s player in the world at the moment.
She has some competition from Azarenka, who dispatched Johanna Konta in straight sets. The 26-year-old Belarusian ran her 2016 record to 20-1 with the win. Both opponents were complimentary of one another after the match:
