Medvedev Beats Schwartzman To Reach Queen's Club Semi-finals
Russian to meet Simon on Saturday
The fourth seed dominated Argentine Diego Schwartzman in a 6-2, 6-2 victory over 77 minutes, breaking serve in the first and fifth games of each set. Medvedev, who saved four break points, struck seven aces and lost the same number of first-service points.
Simon came through an epic battle on Court 1 against French compatriot Nicolas Mahut, who lost to Andy Roddick in the 2007 final. The 34-year-old Simon, the 2015 semi-finalist (l. to Anderson), dug deep to win 7-6(5), 5-7, 7-6(3) in three hours and 21 minutes. It was Simon’s sixth straight win in their eighth FedEx ATP Head2Head meeting.
