Turin Masters 2023: Alcaraz beats Medvedev and will face Djokovic! Results and program

Carlos Alcaraz had his destiny in his hands. By beating Daniil Medvedev (6-4, 6-4), already qualified, he validated his ticket for the semi-finals, where he will meet Novak Djokovic. Daniil Medvedev seemed less involved in this match, and undoubtedly already had the lead in the semi-final. By losing this match in two sets, he even moved to second place in the group and will face the first in the other group, Jannik Sinner.

Tonight at 21, Alexander Zverev faces Andrey Rublev while both players are already guaranteed to be eliminated. Zverev would have two victories if successful this evening, like Medvedev and Alcaraz, but with a difference in sets won of +1 at best (compared to +2 for Medvedev and +3 for Alcaraz).

Jannik Sinner uncompromising at home

Jannik Sinner played the game. While the Italian was already qualified, and could have slowed down to preserve himself, he beat Holger Rune last night in three sets (6-2, 5-7, 6-4). In front of his audience, Jannik Sinner perfectly controlled his opponent, too irregular despite some flashes, as in the second set. This result eliminates the Dane and at the same time qualifies Novak Djokovic, who risked elimination in the event of Jannik Sinner’s defeat.

Earlier in the day, Novak Djokovic played his place in the semi-final against Stefanos Tsitsipas’ replacement, the Pole Hubert Hurkacz. The Serb did the job, but only half: by winning in three sets (7-6, 4-6, 6-1), and therefore by giving up a set to his opponent, he exposed himself to premature elimination . Indeed, in the event of Holger Rune’s victory against Jannik Sinner last night, the world number 1 would have been eliminated based on the difference in sets won. Thanks to Jannik Sinner’s victory, Djokovic reaches the semi-finals and will play against Carlos Alcaraz, first in the “red” group.
