ATP 500, in Beijing Sinner flies to the semifinals and finds Alcaraz


By John

Jannik Sinner needed the third set to get the better of the Bulgarian Gregor Dimitrov and qualify for the semifinal of the ATP 500 tournament in Beijing. The South Tyrolean tennis player won with a score of 6-4/3-6/6-2 in the last scheduled quarter-final. A battle played mostly from the baseline, with the Bulgarian capable of counter-breaking the Italian halfway through the second set, showing an exceptional state of form. Sinner took away his opponent’s serve in the third game in the second game and did well to keep his opponent at a distance. Tomorrow, in the semi-final, Carlos Alcaraz, current world number two (Sinner is 6), awaits him.
