Daniil Medvedev, Nick Kyrgios, and Hubert Hurkacz the most recognized names at Halle Open managed to reach the semi-finals.

The World No. 1 Medvedev put away Roberto Bautista-Agut in the pair’s quarter-final clash on his way to a 6-2, 6-4 win.

The Medvedev serve once again proved a crucial weapon at key moments in the one-hour, 27-minute encounter helping the top seed save all nine break points he faced against the Spaniard.

It was Medvedev’s first win in four attempts and he will now face Oscar Otte, after the home favorite defeated eighth seed Karen Khachanov, 4-6, 7-6(5), 6-4.

Nick Kyrgios, meanwhile, produced another tennis masterclass to race to a 6-4, 6-2 victory against sixth seed Pablo Carreno Busta and reach his third tour-level semi-final of 2022.

The Australian’s clean-hitting helped him fire 37 winners including 13 aces to extend his ATP Head2Head series lead against Carreno Busta to 3-0.

In the Halle Open semi-finals, Kyrgios will face Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz as he aims to reach his first tour-level championship match appearance of the season.

The fifth-seeded Hurkacz found something extra in both tie-breaks as he edged Felix Auger-Aliassime 7-6(2, 7-6(4) to reach his third semi-final of the season at the ATP 500 event.

Their match surprisingly featured no breaks of serve and just a single breakpoint opportunity but the Pole managed to prevail in 1 hour, 47 minutes.

Hurkacz reeled off six points in a row from 1/2 in the first-set tie-break to move ahead and held his nerve in a similar fashion in the second set to secure his first win against Auger-Aliassime in three attempts.
