Pablo Carreno Busta fired off well with an easy first set run against Daniil Medvedev at 6-2 which is incredible to see him build that momentum early.
Medvedev was faltering on the other end after he wasn’t able to catch up on Carreno Busta, even though he had little time picking up just only two points while the Spainard was leading just after halfway.
Although, the Russian began to bounce back immediately after the break at 1-3 in a bid to stay in this Quarter-Final contest, but Carreno Busta pulled off home first which is enough to advance in the 2nd semi-final game v Karen Khachanov.
Bugger for Medvedev who played exceptional at times especially during the 2nd set that led to a tiebreaker, he just couldn’t balance the momentum where the poor 1st set run ultimately cost him an all-Russian affair with Khachanov.
Final Score: 6-2 & 6-6 (7-6 tiebreaker) to Pablo Carreno Busta.
