"The conditions can change here in Miami so I think we were both ready for this day because since the morning it was tough. I was fighting a bit more and just playing more aggressive and it paid off," said Pliskova after her victory.
"It's a match up I have been looking forward to my whole life, a high stakes match against your idol. It's just a dream come true," said Shapovalov. "It's an exciting draw, for John and for myself here, playing these young guys," said Federer.
