Rublev set for career-high ranking after downing Coric in St Petersburg

Denis Shapovalov and Milos Raonic advance to St. Petersburg Open semi-finals

No. 2 seed Denis Shapovalov was impressive in his third career head-to-head with fifth seed Stan Wawrinka at the ATP 500 St. Petersburg Open on Friday.

Rublev saved five of six break points to advance and took advantage in the final set when Shapovalov needed treatment on his shoulder.

Previous year in St. Petersburg Open Andrey lost to Daniil Medvedev in the quarter 6-4 7-5. Thus, the opponent of the Russian tennis player Andrei Rublev in the final was determined.

The tournament in St. Petersburg was played with fans in the stands.

Rublev was flawless on his serve and never gave Coric a break point opportunity.

"What can I say, unbelievable job for the last couple of months", Coric said to Rublev on court.

Eagerly awaiting him in the final will be Borna Coric, who rallied from a first-set blowout to beat Milos Raonic, 1-6, 6-1, 6-4.

Alexander Zverev progressed to his second final since the resumption of the ATP Tour at the Cologne Indoors.

Last year's Moscow champion has already claimed trophies in Doha, Adelaide and Hamburg this season and is in second place on the 2020 ATP Tour wins leaderboard with 33 wins this year. Shapovalov therefore won this first set 6-4.

"It was a great match for me", Raonic said during an on-court interview after his win. In the quarterfinals, he was matched up against Russia's Karen Khachanov, which he beat 6-1, 7-6 (1), where he also recorded 15 aces.

Coric lost the first set very quickly, and the key was the second game, which lasted more than 10 minutes.

"I don't know if I ever played as badly as in the first set". His serve has been untouchable, although Coric is an excellent returner, and will probably be Raonic's toughest match to date.
