Montpellier Open: Sinner sets up semi-final versus wild card Fils
Jannik Sinner defeated Lorenzo Sonego 6-4, 6-2 on Friday. He’ll face wild card Arthur Fils in the next round
Second seed Jannik Sinner moved into the last four of the Montpellier Open by winning against Lorenzo Sonego 6-4, 6-2 at the Sud de France Arena on Friday.
Sinner, ranked No 17, will play wild card Arthur Fils next.
“It was my first match since the Australian Open, I was tight,” admitted the 21-year-old afterwards. “I’m very happy with my performance today and it’s my first win in Montpellier, very positive!”
Sinner extended his career record against other Italians on tour to 6-0 as he moved into his 13th semi-final – and eighth on hard court alone.
In the previous round of the Montpellier tournament, Jannik Sinner benefited from the forfeit of Hungarian Marton Fucsovics.
Sonego, ranked No 56, beat Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi, the No 8 seed (6-3, 6-4) and Serb Filip Krajinovic (7-5, 6-1) in the previous rounds of the Montpellier tournament.
