To some extent, Musetti was lucky that Sinner withdrew from the Barcelona tournament, as it is doubtful that Lorenzo would have beaten Yannick in his usual form. A week ago, Musetti lost without a chance to his compatriot in Monte Carlo and apparently in Catalonia the result would be more or less the same, but as written above, Yannick withdrew from the tournament. And now Musetti will face Tsitsipas in the semi-finals. Earlier, the Italian had eliminated Australian Kubler and Briton Norri from the draw.
As predicted, Stefanos had no problems passing Australian Alex de Minaura in the quarter-finals of the tournament in Barcelona. Tsitsipas won 6-4, 6-2 in one hour and 22 minutes. Throughout the game, the Greek made one ace without double faults, scoring 72% on his first serve and 73% on his second. Acceptance statistics: 26% / 53%. Prior to eliminating De Minaura from the tournament, Stefanos also easily dealt with Shapovalov and Kachin. You can see that Hellene is in great shape, ready to compete with Alcaraz in the final.
