Andrej Rublev and Zuham Munnar have finally reached the finals of the next generation
four with victories on Thursday, joining Alec de Minaur and Stefanos
Tsitsipas, who both have 100 percent of records.
Russian 2017 finalist Rublev surpassed De Minor
Wednesday, but returned back 24 hours later, after Australia
through group B.
The winning joker Liam Caruana moves 4-3 (9-7) 4-1 4-2
left Rublev far more satisfied with his performances than he did
approaches Semifinals against Tsitsipas.
"This was a completely different performance," he said. "My
attitude, I think, was the best attitude of these three
"I was focused, I'm not sorry, I tried to fight
each point, because I know that every point for me costs a lot. Yeah
just trying to win every point, each word is not important
the result. "

De Minaur was dominant in a similar way because he won the third place
match in Milan after the first set, defeating Tailor Fritz 4-3

"I'm really proud of my efforts and I'm looking forward to it
next, "De Minor said.
Munnar finished fourth place
already qualified Tsitsipas beat Hubert Hurkacza 4-1 4-3 (7-2) 4-1
in the late game of the day.
Hurkacz still had the opportunity to advance forward
conflict, but Munnar – bounced back by Frances Tiafoe
hopes earlier on Thursday – instead passed.
Munnar joked after an infinite 4-1 4-3 (7-3) 4-1 triumph: "Yes
I did what I had to do and was no longer in my hands. Maybe we can
buy a Greek flag or anything for support. "
