Turin Masters: Zeballos and Granollers are already in the semifinals

The Argentine Horacio Zeballos and the Spanish Marcel Granollers defeated the Croatians Mate Pavic and Nikola Mektic on Tuesday by 6-4 and 7-6 (4) for the second round of the Green Group and advanced to the semifinals of the Masters doubles table that takes place in the Italian city of Turin, in which the Russian Daniil Medvedev agreed to the same instance, but in the singles competition.

Zeballos from Mar del Plata, fifth in the world doubles ranking, and Catalan Granollers, sixth, used 1 hour and 42 minutes to defeat the Balkan duo, which is the number one on the planet.

Zeballos and Granollers advanced to the semifinals thanks to the later victory of Dodig and Polasek against the pair formed by the German Kevin Krawietz and the Romanian Horia Tecau, who won 7-6 (7-2) and 7-5, in the other game in the area, after 1 hour and 43 minutes of confrontation.

Pavic and Mektic had surpassed last Sunday the duo of Krawietz and Tecau, in a group where the two best couples will advance to the semifinals, for which the Mar del Plata and the Catalan made their pass before the last date scheduled for next Thursday , in which they will play against Krawietz and Tecau.

On the other hand, in the singles tournament, the Russian Daniil Medvedev (2) defeated the German Alexander Zverev (3) by 6-3, 6-7 (3) and 7-6 (6), after 2 hours and 39 minutes of an exciting match. In this way, Medvedev went to the semifinals, because in the second match the Italian Matteo Berrettini (7) did not appear due to injury, a situation that automatically classified the Russian tennis player.

Last Monday Berrettini (7) fell against the German Zverev 7-6 (9-7), 1-0 and the Roman player retired due to physical discomfort in the left external oblique abdominal, an injury that left him out of the tournament. Berrettini informed the organizers that he will not continue in the competition and will be replaced by his compatriot, the youth Jannik Sinner (10), who will play the remaining two matches of the Red Group.

Sinner, in the last match of the day on the night of Turin, beat the Pole Hubert Hurkacz (9) 6-2 and 6-2, after 1 hour and 28 minutes of play.

In the Nitto ATP Finals (Masters) singles tournament this Wednesday they will play for the Green Group: Serbian Novak Djokovic (1) against Russian Andrey Rublev (5) and Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas (4) with Norwegian Casper Ruud (8 ).
