FIRST WIN AGAINST AUGER-ALIASSIME
I knew I had to be determined. I’ve had tough matches against him in the past; In Basel I lost a bit of momentum in the middle of the fight and today the goal was to fight and keep up with him. I played one of the best games of the season and I’m very happy.
I HAD NEVER GET A BREAK
He’s got a great serve and I’ve never had a break. I am very proud that I finally managed to do this. I tried to attack his second serves and dominate the rallies, being aggressive from the baseline.
MEET SINNER IN THE SEMIFINALS
I look forward to challenging Sinner again. We’ve had some intense battles in the past and I love going through that. It’s going to be a great game for both the fans and me. I’ll give everything to play my best tennis and I know he’s playing very well.
