Defending champ Tsitsipas out at Open 13, Medvedev through
MARSEILLE, France (AP) — Stefanos Tsitsipas has seen his bid for a third straight Open 13 title end after losing to doubles specialist Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the quarterfinals in three sets. Herbert has a career Grand Slam in doubles but in singles is ranked 93rd compared to fifth for the Australian Open semifinalist Tsitsipas. Top-seeded Daniil Medvedev made light work of reaching the semifinals by brushing aside fifth-seeded Jannik Sinner in straight sets. Medvedev chases a 10th career title and next faces qualifier Matthew Ebden in Marseille. The Australian ranked No. 287 became the lowest-ranked semifinalist in the tournament’s 28-year history.
