there is Korda between Sonego and the semifinals (live at 14 on tv)

Lorenzo served very well: 5 aces (and zero double fouls), 65% of the first in the field with which he obtained 81% of the points and a 60% of points won also with the second. Two break points conceded and canceled.

“I was very aggressive, especially in the first three shots – commented the blue, absolutely radiant – he plays very well from the back and is dangerous. I was also able to respond very well. I’m really happy because this has been a very tough year for me ”.

On Saturday Sonego will play a place in the final with the Polish Hubert Hurkacz, n.10 in the ranking and second favorite in seeding: Lorenzo is ahead by 2-1 in the balance of the precedents with the 25-year-old from Wroclaw and has won – in two tie-breaks – even the most recent, played in the round of 16 in Vienna in 2020 (on the fast Austrian indoor the blue would then beat the then world number one Djokovic, giving up only in the final to the Russian Rublev).

In Metz “Sonny” won three games in the same tournament for the first time this season: he overtook the Russian Aslan Karatsev, 39 ATP and sixth-seeded for the first time in four matches, in two sets , repeated in the second round against the French Gilles Simon, 175 in the ranking, scored three times in Metz (2009, 2010 and 2018) and on the draw thanks to a wild card, which participated for the last time in the tournament, and then came the success on Korda, 49 ATP.
