The Greek gives in three sets to Hurkacz, for the Russian success on Korda (bruised). In the women’s tournament Barty flies to the final, overwhelmed Svitolina

After Medvedev, the second-seeded Miami Masters 1000 also falls ($ 4,299,205, hard). Stefanos Tsitsipas was defeated in three sets – 2-6 6-3 6-4 – by Pole Hubert Hurkacz (world number 37, who had beaten in six of the previous 7. The world number 5 Greek found himself in advantage 6-2, 2-0. “And there I lost control – he said at the end of the match. The credit goes to Hurkacz, but it is a very disappointing defeat, I had the opportunity to win the tournament”.

Andrey Rublev continues the race with a 7-5 7-6 (7) win over Sebastian Korda, on the pitch with a muscle problem in his thigh. In the semifinal on the other side of the scoreboard, great expectations for Jannik Sinner who, after the success against Bublik, will meet at 7 pm with the Iberian Roberto Batista Agut. Sinner at 19 years and 7 months plays the first semifinal of a Masters 1000 and is the second Italian in the semifinal in Miami after Fognini in 2017. In the only precedent against Bautista Agut, Jannik had won 7-5 in the third set.
