Daniil Medvedev reached today the semi-finals of the Italia Open after defeating Yannick Hanfmann 6-2, 6-2.
ATP's official website said that Medvedev sat deep behind the baseline to soak up the Germans powerful hitting, striking a number of stunning passing winners. The third seed moved well on center court and timed the ball cleanly off both wings to advance after one hour and 20 minutes.
Medvedev has now earned a Tour-leading 18 ATP Masters 1000 wins this season, highlighted by his run to the title in Miami last month. The 27-year-old, who defeated Alexander Zverev in the fourth round, will continue the quest for his fifth trophy of the season when he takes on Stefanos Tsitsipas or Borna Coric in the semi-finals on Saturday.
