Blue Lorenzo Sonego was knocked out of the quarter-finals of the ATP Tour in Sydney, losing in three sets to Russian Aslan Karatsev 6-2, 3-6, 6-2.
The Torino tennis player got off to a bad start, dropping the bar already at the start and again in the seventh inning. Even in the second set he lost his serve immediately but immediately scored the second and in the eighth he repeated himself, recounting the set soon after. At the crucial stage, the 28-year-old asked Vladikavkaz for medical leave due to a muscular problem, but he played four matches in a row and closed the match. In the semi-finals, he will face the Russian Maxime Cressi. In another challenge to reach the final, Britain’s Andy Murray will face American Riley Opelka.
