Tsitsipas Storms Into Antwerp SFs

Bublik, Marterer also advance

Stefanos Tsitsipas advanced to his first tour-level semi-final since winning the Los Cabos title in August with a clean performance on Friday night at the European Open in Antwerp.

The top-seeded Greek beat Yannick Hanfmann 6-3, 6-3 to record back-to-back tour-level singles wins for the first time since that Los Cabos run. The victory saw Tsitsipas through to the 47th tour-level final of his career and his fifth of the season.

Tsitsipas is also through to the Antwerp doubles semi-finals with brother Petros Tsitsipas. He is set for double duty on Saturday, when he will compete on both fronts.

“When you play on the Tour, you don’t get to do this very often,” Tsitsipas said post-match. “It has its own satisfaction, getting to do both. It’s good that I can play so good in both draws. I’m happy I’m doing it with Petros. I think we can really enjoy out there and take this opportunity to play good tennis.”

Earlier on Friday, third seed Alexander Bublik defeated Giovanni Mpetshi Perricard 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 to advance to the semi-finals in the opposite half of the draw. He will face Maximilian Marterer, who beat Hugo Gaston 6-3, 6-2.
