Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alex De Minaur continue to impress at Next Gen ATP Finals
Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alex De Minaur will head into the Next Gen ATP Finals play-offs with unbeaten records after finishing the group phase 3-0.
Top-seeded Greek Tsitsipas required only one hour and two minutes to see off Hubert Hurkacz 4-1, 4-3 (7-3), 4-1.
The result earned him top spot in Group A and he will take on Andrey Rublev in the semi-final after the Russian won his Group B encounter against Liam Caruana 4-3 (9-7), 4-1, 4-2.
The other last-four clash will see 19-year-old De Minaur up against Jaume Munar from Spain.
Second-seeded Australian De Minaur also made it three wins from three matches as he beat Taylor Fritz 4-3 (10-8), 4-1, 4-2.
“Whenever I step on court, I want to leave 150 per cent out there and today was no different,” he told ATPWorldTour.com. “I’m really proud of my effort and I’m looking forward to what’s next.”
Munar booked his place in the play-off with a 4-1, 4-3 (7-3), 4-1 win over American Frances Tiafoe.
