Struff aims for first ATP Tour final

Stuttgart,

It’s the day of the semifinals at the MercedesCup.

It’s the day of the semifinals at the MercedesCup. German fans still have someone to cheer for as Jan-Lennard Struff will face Italian Matteo Berrettini in the fight for a spot in the final. The Italian, currently no. 30 in the world, is a tough draw as the the 23-year old has yet to face a single break point in this tournament. It will be Struff’s seventh ATP Tour semifinal, but the 29-year old German still has to make it through to his first final on this level. It will be the first duel between these two, the match will start at 1 pm.

Auger-Aliassime has one heck of a week behind him. Playing his first professional grass court tournament, the 18-year old Canadian has already reached the semifinal after a tough 3-set win over German fan-favorite Dustin Brown. The world’s no. 21 has matched a record set 20 years ago by Australian Lleyton Hewitt as the youngest player reaching semifinals on three different surfaces in the same year.

He will face a fellow countryman in Milos Raonic. By beating the Hungarian Marton Fucsovics on Friday in straight sets he set up an all-Canadian clash in the semis (not before 3 pm).

The day at Stuttgart’s Weissenhof, however, starts already off at 11 am with the final doubles semis between Rohan Bopanna (IND)/Denis Shapovalov (CAN) and Nick Kyrgios (AUS)/Matt Reid (AUS).
