MADRID, 22 (EUROPE PRESS)

Spanish tennis player Carlos Alcaraz defeated Russian Karen Khachanov (6-0, 6-2) to reach the semi-finals of the tournament in Hamburg (Germany), while Albert Ramos also made it to the penultimate round in Gstaad this Friday and in the WTA appointment of Palermo, agreed ‘semis’ Sara Sorribes.

Alcaraz smells again of a title that would be his fifth of the season. The Murcian ravaged his first major rival on German soil this week, where he has gone from less to more. Now the young Spaniard is driving at full speed, with a game that has had few rivals this year of the Circuit’s inauguration.

After studying at Roland Garros and Wimbledon without the expected result, the Juan Carlos Ferrero pupil returns to daily reality as a rival to beat. The El Palmar native will play his sixth semi-final in 10 tournaments played this season after a show that cited him in the semi-final with Slovakia’s Alex Molcan.

Also from Spain, Alejandro Davidovich gave up against Italy’s Lorenzo Musetti (6-4, 6-3) as he seemed to regain good feelings on land, finalists in Monte Carlo. Musetti plays the other semi-final in Hamburg against Argentinian Francisco Cerúndolo.

At the ATP 250 event in Gstaad, Ramos remained the only Spaniard in the race with his painful victory (7: 6 (4), 4: 6, 7: 6 (8)) against Chilean Nicolás Jarry. The Catalan is being measured for a place in the final against Norway’s Casper Ruud, executioner of Jaume Munar (7-6(3), 7-6(4)) in a tight match that saw the Balearic have two balls in game ten to force the third set.


Pedro Martínez also said goodbye to Italian Matteo Berrettini in the quarterfinals (3:6, 7:6(5), 6:1). The Valencian scored the opener and had the only ‘break’ balls in set number two, but clearly gave up his sleeve in sudden death. Berrettini, second seed, didn’t allow an option in the third.

Castellón’s Sara Sorribes, meanwhile, reached the penultimate round at the expense of Hungary’s Anna Bondar (6-2, 6-3) in Palermo and reached the semi-finals for the first time this season, where she meets Romania’s Irina-Camelia Begu. against which he has only one precedent and that is the defeat in Prague two years ago.

Around midnight, Andalusian Nuria Párrizas (6:7(5), 7:5, 6:2) from the Italian country bid farewell to local hero Jasmine Paolini, despite having two match points in the second set.
