Four-time Miami Open runner-up Rafael Nadal advanced to the semifinals by beating American Jack Sock 6-2, 6-3. His next opponent will be Fabio Fognini.
Rafa committed only 12 unforced errors against the No. 13-seeded Sock, rallied from a break down in the second set and improved his lifetime record against Americans to 60-9. Our champ was able to save six of seven break points earned by Sock as he kept control of the contest.
Rafa has never won in Miami despite being a four-time finalist, and his win opens up the possibility of a meeting in the final with Roger Federer.
