Venus Williams will face Johanna Konta for the fourth time in her career, the British player leads head to head 2-1 but Venus is playing very well and aims to reach his fourth final in Miami, where she won three titles.

"I'm happy today to have come through somehow", Federer said.

Federer appeared poised to cruise to victory after such a dominant set, but Berdych was undeterred by his slow start. But playing against Federer will be be a very, very hard and Berdych is not expected to win.

The Swiss superstar was locked in during the early going, as he broke Berdych in his first service game.

The two competitors had to be separated by a final-set tiebreaker, which Federer ultimately claimed following a Berdych double fault after just under two hours played. "He was the one serving out the match, didn't make it".

Federer next will play the victor of Thursday's later quarter-final between two of the ATP's up and coming stars, Australia's Nick Kyrgios and Germany's Alexander Zverev.

Holding a 3-2 advantage, Federer scored a huge break of serve to go up 4-2 and put himself in ideal position to close out the match. The 35-year old Tennis God, and arguably the best player ever to play the game is on fire in big events and could continue with his winning ways at the ATP Miami.

Spain's Rafael Nadal and Italy's Fabio Fognini are already through to Friday's other semi-final.
