Live tennis in the semi-finals of the Serbia Open: Waiting for Djokovic – Rublev to confirm the position
(Sports news – Serbia Open semi-final live): Djokovic and Rublev need to assert themselves when facing lower-rated players.
Novak Djokovic – Karen Khachanov, around 7 p.m., April 23, semi-finals of the Serbia Open
Novak Djokovic seems to have not found his original form. The Serbian player had a difficult journey at the tournament, although the opponent was not appreciated. In the opening match, Djokovic lost 2-6 in the first set and 2 sets then needed a tie-break series to win.
Djokovic faces Khachanov in the semi-finals of the Serbia Open
In the quarterfinals, Djokovic continued to face another compatriot, Kecmanovic. Nole lost the first set again, but won the other two sets with the same score of 6-3. Perhaps having to take a break from playing for a while is seriously affecting the performance of the Serbian tennis player.
Djokovic’s semifinal opponent is Karen Khachanov. The Russian player did not have to play much when the opponent in the second round missed and the opponent in the quarterfinals was not at the same level. Khachanov only took 2 sets to eliminate Brazilian tennis player, Monteiro.
In 8 confrontations, Djokovic won 7 times while Khachanov only had 1. The last time these two players faced off was at the Dubai Championship and Djokovic won with a score of 2-0. If showing the right ability, Nole will do the same in this match.
Fabio Fognini – Andrey Rublev, around 20:30, semi-finals of the Serbia Open
The second semi-final of the Serbia Open is the confrontation between Fabio Fognini and Andrey Rublev. After 3 matches, Fognini showed stable performance when playing on the field of his forte. The Italian player in turn defeated Cecchinato, Bedene and the latest Otte to be in the fourth round of the strongest players.
However, those opponents are all “underdog” compared to Fognini. Therefore, the Italian tennis player needs to show his bravery when confronting Rublev.
The Russian tennis player easily got 2 victories to participate in the semi-finals. Before that, Rublev was continuously eliminated from the Miami Open and Monte Carlo in the first round after reaching the semi-finals Indian Wells.
These two players have a lot of debt when they have met 9 times and the score is 5-4 in favor of Fognini. In 3 meetings on the ground, the Italian player also won 2 and lost only 1. But perhaps Rublev will equalize the score after this match.
In parallel with the Serbia Open, the semi-finals of the Barcelona Open take place tonight.
At 6:30 p.m., sixth seed Diego Schwartzman faced eighth seed Pablo Carreno Busta. Despite the lower seeding, Busta has the upper hand in head-to-head record (2 wins, 1 loss), so this encounter becomes even more unpredictable.
At 9pm, 5th seed Carlos Alcaraz met 10th seed Alex De Minaur. In the heat of the moment after defeating stronger players in the quarterfinals (Alcaraz won the first seed Tsitsipas, De Minaur won the fourth seed Cameron Norrie), the two young players certainly do not want the journey to conquer the throne. soon ended.
