World No. 2 Rafael Nadal has booked his place in the last four of the ATP Tour Finals by beating Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 5-7, 6-2 at London’s O2 Arena.
The result means that Rafa, who will face Russian Daniil Medvedev on Saturday, has now reached the semi-final stage of the season-ending event on six occasions.
After the match, Rafa said:
“I think I played quite well for such a long time. That game at 5-4 in the second set affected me a little bit, but then I was able to get the break early in the third, then he broke me and I broke again.
“I was winning serves quite comfortably until that moment, after that everything changed and I started to serve worse.
“But in general terms it was a positive match for me. To reach the semi-finals in the last tournament of the year is an important thing.”
