20231104 061557

Stefanos Tsitsipas powered his way into the semi-finals of the Paris Masters with a dominant 6-3, 6-4 victory over Karen Khachanov on Friday.

It was the 300th win of his career and gives the Greek, ranked sixth in the world, a semi-final match-up with Grigor Dimitrov who overcame Hubert Hurkacz 6-1, 4-6, 6-4. Tsitsipas, who also reached the semis a year ago when he lost to Novak Djokovic, reached the last four without dropping a set and produced an impressive variety of plays to counter Khachanov's baseline power.

"It's working well. I feel like I can mix up play," said Tsitsipas.

"It feels good to have so much variety and so much diversity in the way you can play.

"I take that as an opportunity to keep growing my game and keep looking forward at the many more matches to come and appreciate each moment that comes my way."

Tsitsipas has already qualified for the end of season ATP Finals as one of the season's top eight players but defeat for Hurkacz against Dimitrov almost certainly rules the Pole out of contention.
