He keeps Sonego’s service with his nails and teeth in the ninth game to take 5-4 with Lajovic to serve. The Serbian falls slightly and the Turin player finds himself with a break ball which is also a fundamental set point to lengthen the life and go to the third but does not take the opportunity. The Serbian makes another break and closes 7-5 for the first semi-final in a 1000 of career.
