Friday was the day all the arrears were accommodated in Barcelona. Fans did not complain of boredom. The highlight of the evening was the fencing between Carlos Alcaraz and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Due to rain, all third-round and quarter-final matches are scheduled for Friday. The organizers can breathe a sigh of relief because the plan was successfully implemented. There were also many interesting duels. Three hundred matches were required to select the semi-finalists.
Fans were especially looking forward to the duel between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Carlos Alcaraz. When he defeated Greek Grigor Dimitrov in the third round and defeated fellow Spaniard Jaume Munnar, their dream came true. The gentlemen created a pleasant scene in the evening scene. The Athenian may already be tired after last week’s battles in Monte Carlo, but he was reborn in the second set. Alcaraz finally won in a ratio of 6:4, 5:7, 6:2.
– Probably my biggest gain on the meal. I played unbelievably, the atmosphere in the stadium was also great. It was all unbelievable – the fans, the level of tennis, the whole match – said in an on-court interview, Alcaraz, who will debut in the top ten on Monday, and his balance with Tsitsipas is currently 3-0.

On Saturday, Alcaraz’s opponent will be Alex de Minaur. The Australian is satisfied with the Catalan meal. On Friday, he first took advantage of the health problems of South African Lloyd Harris, then got into a fatal fight with Cameron Norrie. For the British this was the second difficult duel, because he had dismissed Marton Fukowicz earlier. The tennis player from Sydney beat Norrie 6:3, 5:7, 6:1 and will fight for the final. De Minaur and Alcaraz haven’t played together in the main series yet.
Diego Schwartzman first beat Italian Lorenzo Mossetti in the third round, and then overturned the fate of the duel with Felix Auger-Aliassime. He won with the Canadian 3:6, 6:2, 6:3 and will appear in the semi-finals. His opponent will be Pablo Carreno on Saturday. The Spaniard also returned from 0-1 in sets, having defeated Norway’s Casper Ruud 4:6, 7:6 (8), 6:3, defending the second set of three match balls in the 10th inning. Carreno and Schwartzman have a 2-1 lead in the main series. Last year he defeated him in the quarter-finals of the competition in Barcelona.
