And Andy Murray didn’t follow through on his “biggest win of the season,” as he described Wednesday’s win over Yannick Sener. 24 hours after his victory over the Italian, he was eliminated from the ATP tournament in Stockholm. In the quarter-finals, the British wild card holder lost 2:6, 6:3, 3:6 with Tommy Ball.

– I gave my best tennis – said the American, quoted by atptour.com. – It was so much fun. He is a legend and during the match I thought it would be fun to compete with him. I wanted to make him run. This was my plan – he added.

In the semi-finals, Paul will face fellow countryman Francis Tiafoe of the “eighth” championship. The 23-year-old from Florida won the second US-British showdown at 1:6, 6:1, 6:1 with Daniel Evans, and finished fourth.

Aside from the Americans, the Canadians also showed their best. Denis Shapovalov, the third seed, defeated Arthur Renderknik 4:6, 6:3, 7:5 after nearly two and a half hours of duel, thus coming close to defending the title.

The next competitor for Shapovalov will be his compatriot and teammate Felix Auger-Aliassime, the “second” championship. The 21-year-old from Montreal beat Boutique Van de Zandschulp 6:4, 6:3 and scored his 100th victory on the main course. It was a great match in my performance. It’s always fun to win without losing a set – the Canadian emphasized.
