Paris semi-finals Percy: Ron beats Auger Aliassime, Djokovic wrestles with Tsitsipas

Dane Holger Rune halted Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime’s winning streak on Saturday in the Paris Percy semi-finals. He defeated 19-year-old Auger Alyassime, unbeaten in 16 matches inside the wing, in 88 minutes 6:4, 6:2 and is in the ATP Masters 1000 final for the first time. In this Rune meets Novak Djokovic (SRB-6) on Sunday (3pm / Live Sky), who beat Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas (5) after 2:20 hours with 6:2.3:6.7:6 (4).

Ron retaliated only six days after the 3:6:5:7 defeat at Basel. Auger-Aliassime scored the fourth title-winning goal in four weeks after winning in Florence, Antwerp and of course Basel.

Rune has improved at least from 18th to 12th in the ATP rankings and will surely be better than ever in the world rankings as of Monday. If he even won the title in East Seine City, he would break the top ten for the first time in tenth place. He’s proven he’s ready for that this week with four straight wins over the top ten. After veteran superstar Stan Wawrinka, he beat Hubert Hurkacz (Poland / 10th), Andrei Rublio (Russia / 7th), ailing Carlos Alcaraz (Spain / 1st) and Auger Alesim (8th).

Now Ron is in the fourth consecutive final after Sofia (defeat), Stockholm (title) and the aforementioned performance in Basel. If he wins the Paris Bercy title, it will be his third title this year and ever. The teen’s rapid rise continues into 2022: in January for the first time in the top 100, in May in the top 50, and since October in the top 20. Opened last spring.
