Cristian Garin (24th in the ATP ranking) goes for more in the Spanish capital. Now he will seek to be in the semifinals of the Masters 1000 in Madrid.
The “Tank”, who advanced to the round of eight after knocking down with a triumph the N ° 3 of the planet, the Russian Daniil Medvedev, will now have to challenge another top ten: Matteo Berrettini, 10th ATP.
The match will be disputed this Friday in the fourth and last shift at Manolo Santana Stadium, at about 2:30 p.m. (Chile time) and you can see it by ESPN 2.
On Friday, the Italian defeated Argentine qualifier Federico Delbonis (77th) by partials of 7-6 (4) and 6-4 and before he beat his compatriot Fabio Fognini (28th) by 6-3 in the second phase and 6-4, while in the first round he was released as the eighth seed.
The Italian is on a roll: with the victory against Delbonis he added 6 consecutive celebrations, because two weeks ago he won the title at the ATP 250 in Belgrade, where he defeated Russian Aslan Karatsev in the final to win the fourth trophy of his career, after Gstaad 2018, Budapest and Stuttgart 2019. In addition, this season the Italian reached with his country the final of the ATP Cup (loss to Russia) and the round of 16 of the Australian Open.
This will be Garin’s third duel against Berrettini, after the Munich final that the Chilean won in 2019 6-1, 3-6 and 7-6, on clay, and the defeat in the second round of the Shanghai Masters 1000 the same year by 6-3 and 6-3.
