Carlos Alcaraz secured his spot in the semi-finals of the China Open by defeating Casper Ruud in straight sets.

Despite facing an early 3-0 deficit, the second-seeded Alcaraz showcased his resilience, ultimately triumphing with a scoreline of 6-4, 6-2. Ruud, the seventh seed, initially had the 20-year-old Spaniard on the defensive, but Alcaraz’s exceptional play turned the tide.

In the upcoming semi-final clash, Alcaraz, aged 20, will square off against 22-year-old Italian sensation Jannik Sinner, who advanced by defeating Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 in a hard-fought match.

The other semi-final showdown will feature world number three Daniil Medvedev taking on the eighth seed, Alexander Zverev.

Should Alcaraz and Medvedev both reach the final, it would be a rematch of their encounter in the US Open semi-finals, where the 27-year-old Russian halted the young Spaniard’s impressive run at Flushing Meadows.
