Alex de Minaur qualified for his first ATP Masters 1000 final. In the semi-finals of the hard-court event in Toronto, the Australian gave Alejandro Davidovich only four matches.
Alejandro Davidovich was in fine form during the ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Toronto. After a three-hour duel, he knocked out Casper Ruud and gave the other three rivals just 11 games. On Saturday, however, he performed very poorly and lost 1:6, 3:6 against Alex de Minaur in the semi-final.
The game was very one-sided, mainly due to the attitude of Davidovich, who had big problems entering the field. The Spaniard lost the first set 1-6, committing up to 19 unforced errors. In the second set, from the point of view of the Malaga tennis player, it was a little better – he ended up with three wins and ten mistakes on his part.
For De Minaur, this is the 14th promotion to the cycle’s main event final in his career, but first in the ATP Masters 1000. So far, the Aussie has won seven titles – the last at the beginning of March in Acapulco. .
“It was very windy but I thought to myself to keep a positive attitude. I wanted to play solid and fight for every point. I think that made a difference,” said the 26-year-old. originally from Sydney at atptour.com.
In the final on Sunday, the Australian will face the best of the pair Tommy Paul – Jannik Sinner.
