Gen Finals Alex de Minaur downs Frances Tiafoe to reach second final

Alex de Minaur is one win away from securing his spot in the semi-final of the 2019 Next Gen finals but having to play under a different set of rules certainly isn't completely to his liking this week. But the second-seeded American is still pleased to have a chance at the 2018 runner-up in Milan. Sinner lost his last round-robin match against Frenchman Ugo Humbert 4-3 (5), 3-4 (3), 4-2, 4-2 in one hour and 42 minutes. The 20-year-old will look to improve to 2-0 against Tiafoe after beating him in four sets at the 2018 US Open.

"I appreciate this event and I want to continue to be".

In the other Group "B" match, second-seeded Frances Tiafoe of the United States who lost to Sinner on Tuesday beat Ugo Humbert of France 4-2, 4-3 (5), 3-4 (4), 4-1. "The more you win, the longer you can stay, so I'm happy to be in the semis".

"I know that coaching is great for the spectators, as it gives insights on what the player is thinking and how to solve solutions". Fans are unbelievable here.

Matches at the ATP NextGen finals are played on a best of five sets, first to four games in each set basis.

Every single queen for series one has brought something different to the table and I've loved watching and getting to know them. Any queens with charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent are to apply. "Here's to another season of love, laughter and light".

"I just had to regroup and stick to my game".

The other semifinal pits Group A runner-up and fifth seed Miomir Kecmanovic of Serbia against eight-seeded Italian Jannik Sinner, the Group B victor. He is the first Italian to make the semi-finals in the tournament's three-year history.

Davidovich Fokina took the first set and went the distance but came up short in a 3-4 (2-7) 4-3 (7-2) 4-2 3-4 (2-7) 4-1 loss to the Norwegian. "I watched his matches", Kecmanovic said of Sinner.

Sinner, 18, will face Kecmanovic in the semifinals, with De Minaur taking on Tiafoe.
