Sinner reaches semis at Next Gen Finals

De Minaur Tiafoe Kecmanovic reach Gen semifinals

"I knew from playing Casper before that he'd dictate any short ball without a objective", De Minaur said.

De Minaur's semifinal opponent will be second seed Tiafoe, who earned his first trip to the semifinals in Milan by beating the opponent in straight sets 4-2, 4-2, 4-2.

"The goal I had was [to take] any half-chance, go up and back myself at the net".

De Minaur, who finished runner-up past year in the season-ending tournament for the top under-21 players, beat Casper Ruud 4-1, 4-0, 4-2 in just 61 minutes to finish 3-0 in Group A.

"... I'm glad it worked out today".


Miomir Kecmanovic eased past Alejandro Davidovich Fokina from Spain 4-1, 4-1, 4-3 (6) in only 58 minutes to set a semi-final clash with Italian wild card entry Jannik Sinner. "I'm looking forward to the semi-finals". Tiafoe, who failed to make it out of the group stage past year, will try to reach his first Next Gen ATP Finals title match against De Minaur, the top seed who has yet to drop a match at the Allianz Cloud.

Tiafoe, who goes by the nickname "Big Foe", came up big during his win-or-go-home match against Mikael Ymer on Thursday, winning 4-2, 4-2, 4-2 against the sixth-seeded Swede.

The five-day event, held at the Allianz Cloud, features the top eight 21-and-under players from the ATP Tour season, divided into two groups, in a round-robin format.

Having finished runner-up at the 2018 Next Generation ATP Finals, Alex de Minaur has made a strong start to this year's tournament.

Sinner, 18, will face Kecmanovic in the semifinals, with De Minaur taking on Tiafoe.
