Wild card winners Hubert Hurkacz and John Isner won three matches in impressive style and reached the doubles semi-finals at the 2022 Miami Open. Tanasi Kokinakis and Nick Kyrgios stood in their way on Thursday. The Australians formed an interesting duo, thrillingly winning the 2022 Australian Open Grand Slam in January.
After 65 minutes, Hurkacz and Isner won on Thursday 6:4, 6:3 and advanced to the Miami Open 2022 final. Thus, the US representative could repeat the success of Indian Wells, winning with fellow countryman Jacek Sock.
Kokinakis and Kyrgios walked out onto the field completely relaxed and smiling. They wanted not only to offer their tennis, but also to have fun. Horkacz and Isner understand and complement each other well. Both were very good at service and coming back. Thanks to this, they scored two more chips than their competitors.

The first group was very close at first. In the sixth match, the Australians saved themselves after a powerful shot from Kokkinakis and the score was after 3. The great feelings were in the final stage. First, in the eighth inning, Isner acted very clearly and scored a breakthrough. But Big John was surprised when he came across a definite win. A great forehand hit hit Kyrgios that gave the Kangaroos a chance to come back. However, they did not achieve any equation. Hurkacz made two free kicks, and after a while Isner took the opportunity to play in the net.
The second batch started by smashing Hurkacz’s pass to zero. However, Australians did not enjoy driving for long. Kokkinakis lost the service after being substituted. Then the match was tied and both pairs waited for their chances. In the third, Isner saved the game with two powerful moves. After switching sides, the Polish-Australian couple have sent out some pretty impressive returns on the Kyrgios website. The Australian was broken after a very good backhand from Wroclaw. Now Hubi and his partner are no longer waiting. They finished the match with the first match ball.
The men’s doubles final is scheduled for Saturday. Hurkacz and Isner’s opponents will be Wesley Kohlhoff and Neil Skopsky, who is sixth. The Dutch-British duo beat Italian duo Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini 6:1, 3:6, 10-5 in Thursday’s semi-final.
Hurkacz may become the first tennis player to win the Miami Open in singles and doubles. In the singles, our tennis player plays in the semi-finals, where he will face Carlos Alcaraz or Miomir Kekmanovic on Friday.
