Juan Martin del Potro sent his devoted fans home happy Tuesday by powering into the ATP Miami Open quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-2 triumph over Serbian Filip Krajinovic.Raonic, who easily saw off Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3 6-4, lost to del Potro in the Indian Wells semifinals and will be eagerly seeking revenge.Del Potro is the top seed remaining after second seed Marin Cilic was beaten 7-6 (0), 6-3 by American John Isner.The Croatian's run was halted by Isner in just 87 minutes to set up a last-eight meeting with South Korean 19th seed Chung Hyeon.It was a fine performance by Isner, the 14th seed, who rattled down 12 aces and was boosted by winning 85 percent of points on his first serve.All three of Isner's wins over the 2014 U.S. Open champion have now come in ATP Masters events and once a first set tie-break was negotiated in windswept conditions, the 32-year-old confidently held his nerve to send Cilic home.
