A first for Rublev in Marseille

The first semifinal of the day had Andrey Rublev, tournament seed number 2, facing local hero Benjamin Bonzi. And it was Rublev who was most offensive first by breaking his opponent in the 3rd game. However he was unable to hold on to his advantage for long as Bonzi broke back. The crowd was over the moon, but not for long, as Rublev immediately broke again. An advantage to which he held onto this time. 1st set Rublev 6-4.

In the second, Bonzi was able to lift his level. At 3-3, the Frenchman, benefiting from the total support of the full house, captured his opponents serve for the second time. He was able to consolidate and leveled the match at 1 set all.

In the decider, Rublev was first to draw. The break was, this time, enough to seal the deal.

Rublev will play his first final versus Felix Auger-Aliassime our Roman Safiullin.
