Daniil and Stefanos will meet on the pitch for the 12th time, this time in the 1/2 final of the Italian “thousand”.

On Thursday, May 18, at the super tournament in Rome, whose total prize fund is almost 11.3 million euros, the last quarterfinal matches were held in the men’s singles category. Their duel was carried out by the third racket in the world Daniil Medvedev, who was opposed by the number 101 in the ATP ranking, the German Yannick Hanfman. But first things first.

Results of the day 10. Thursday, May 18

Medvedev and Hanfman were the first to enter the court. The Russian tennis player showed his class, despite the fact that it is more difficult for him to do it on the ground, and won a convincing victory: 6: 2, 6: 2. More about this in our material.

In the last quarterfinals they met the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas and the Croatian Borna Coric, seeded fifth and fifteenth respectively. Prior to the quarterfinals, Tsitsipas faced the seed only once in the tournament. In the 4th round, he beat Lorenzo Musetti (18)-7:5, 7:5. And Coric completely avoided meetings with the main rivals. He was partly lucky, in the sense that racket number 135 in the world, Fabian Marozhan, beat Carlos Alcaraz himself in the third round, who otherwise would have become the Croatian’s rival. And so Borna scored a decided victory over a little-known Hungarian – 3:6, 6:4, 6:3.

Before the informative match, Coric was ahead of Tsitsipas in personal meetings: 3-2. At the same time, the Greek won the first victory in the early refusal of the opponent, and only in Rome (4: 1, refusal). In the 1/16 final of the US Open – 2020, the Croatian achieved a difficult victory (6:7 (2:7), 6:4, 4:6, 7:5, 7:6 (7:4)) , then won the Masters” in Cincinnati 2022 in straight sets and an 1/8 final match in Vienna in the fall in a deciding tiebreaker. And Stefanos won at the beginning of this season in the United Cup – 6:0, 6:7 (7:4), 7:5.

In the first set, the opponents at first acted confidently on their serve. For some time, none of the tennis players came close to halftime, but in the eighth game the course of the match fell apart. Tsitsipas won a double break point, used it immediately and took the lead – 5:3. Serving the set, the Greek faced difficulties. However, Stefanos saved a double break point and then converted the first set point: 6:3.

In the second set, Tsitsipas did not delay the break and already in the third game he achieved his goal, after which he defended his serve – 3:1. Two games later, with the score 4:2, the Greek missed a break point (ie a hidden match point). And in the eighth game, during which Stefanos committed two double faults, Coric went to break points for the first time in the match and used the second of them – 4:4. Tsitsipas was not embarrassed by this, and in the ninth game he again took the opponent’s serve, after which he archived the match: 6: 3, 6: 4.

Thus, Tsitsipas will play Medvedev in the semifinals. The score of personal encounters is 7-4 in favor of the Russian. In the second semifinal the Danish Holger Rune (7) and the Norwegian Kasper Ruud (4) will play. Both meetings will take place on Saturday, May 20.

Men. 1/4 final Medvedev (Russia, 3) – Hanfman (Germany, Q) – 6:2, 6:2 Tsitsipas (Greece, 5) – Coric (Croatia, 15) – 6:3, 6:4
