Milan SF Preview: Kecmanovic & Sinner Face Off

Sinner will try to continue his magical home run

After Alex de Minaur moved into the championship match at the Next Gen ATP Finals with a win over Frances Tiafoe, Italian wild card Jannik Sinner, the eighth seed, will try to keep the home fans happy and do the same. The 18-year-old suffered his first loss in Milan on Thursday against Frenchman Ugo Humbert 4-3(5), 3-4(3), 4-2, 4-2, but Sinner had already clinched his semi-final spot before their matchup.

Sinner is the first Italian to make the semi-finals in the tournament's three-year history. Sinner will meet Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic, who secured his semi-final spot with a straight-sets win against Spain's Alejandro Davidovich Fokina on Thursday.
