After three straight wins and great tennis in the group stage, Stefanos Tsitsipas will compete in the second semifinal of the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan tonight (22:00 Greek time), where he will face Andrey Rublev. Russian Rublev, last season’s finalist, did not have a very good season, falling in the No. 68 from No. 31 due to his injuries that suffered. But it does not cease to be a difficult opponent for Tsitsipas, who wants to close as good as possible the season.
In the first semi-final of the day, Alex de Minaur, who also qualified undefeated, will face Jaume Munar, who is considered to be the surprise of the tournament so far, at around 18:00 Greek time.
In addition, the Greek champion was announced as the most improved player of the year by the ATP and will be awarded alongside the other best ATP palyers of the season during the Nitto ATP Finals that start at the O2 Arena in London next week.
