Marseille | Tsitsipas moves on while Medvedev crashes out

Defending champion and second seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece made the last-four of the Open 13 Provence event in Marseille where he was seeded to meet Daniil Mevedev in the final who crashed out of the tournament at the same stage.

I played with passion and patience, and my fighting spirit, when I'm in the right zone, means good things can happen Stefanos Tsitsipas

Tsitsipas defeated Canada’s Vasek Pospisil 7-5 6-3 while the top seeded Medvedev lost to Gilles Simon 6-4 6-0.

“It wasn’t easy, I knew I’d have to fight and be dynamic,” said Tsitsipas. “He plays a very aggressive brand of tennis, so every point has to be treated respectfully. I played with passion and patience, and my fighting spirit, when I’m in the right zone, means good things can happen.”

The Greek will now play Alexander Bublik of Kazakhstan, who knocked out Canadian fourth seed Denis Shapovalov 7-5 4-6 6-3, for a place in Sunday’s final.

Two-time champion Simon stunned top seed and world No 5 Daniil Medvedev in just 67 minutes to reach the semi-finals in what was his third win in three meetings over the Russian.

The 35-year-old Frenchman next faces Felix Auger-Aliassime for a place in the final following the young Canadian’s 7-5 6-2 win over Egor Gerasimov of Belarus.

Success for the 19-year-old Canadian, who defeated Simon in their only previous meeting, would see him making his fifth career final.
