Pierre Hugues Herbert beats Stefanos Tsitsipas for a spot in the semis
Pierre-Hugues Herbert has qualified for the semi-finals of the Open 13 Provence for the very first time. He did that by beating a top 5 player for the very first time. However it wasn't the first time he beats Tsitsipas. Their previous encounter was in 2018 in Shenzen, that day the Frenchman came out on top. Today, he conceeded the first set but Tsitsipas was showing signs of tension. He captured the first set but wasn't able to deal with Herbert's never ending approches to the net. The Frenchman won the second set 6-4 and the third 6-2.
In the semis Herbert will face the winner of the Humbert and Rinderknech. No matter what, there will be a Frenchman in the final.
