He will then play Italy’s Giulio Zeppieri, who beat Spain’s Bernabé Zapata Miralles 7-5, 6-4.

Runner-up Yannick Sinner advanced to his first semi-final this year after beating Roberto Carbales Baena 6-4, 7-6 (5).

The Italian failed to serve the match 6-5 in the second set before taking the tie-break victory.

“Of course I’m very happy,” Sinner said. “I’ve won a lot of matches but I think I’ve had a few bad moments this year.”

Sinner will take on Franco Agamenone, who overtook 2018 Umag champion Marco Cecchinato 6-2, 6-1 in a match between the Italian qualifiers.
