Miami tennis tournament ‘startled’ by bomb from a forehand: umpire must check player’s speed

Tennistoernooi van Miami ‘opgeschrikt’ door bom van een forehand: umpire moet snelheid checken van speler

First seed Daniil Medvedev (ATP 2) has been eliminated in the quarterfinals at the ATP Masters 1,000 tournament in Miami (hard / $ 3,343,785).

The Russian lost 6-4 and 6-2 to Roberto Bautista Agut (ATP 12). The 32-year-old Spaniard had also won the two previous matches against Medvedev, who is seven years younger.

Bautista Agut takes on Friday for a place in the final against the Italian teenager Jannik Sinner (ATP 31). He was too strong for Kazach Alexander Bublik (ATP 44) with 7-6 (7/5) and 6-4. However, Bublik unpacked with a bomb from a forehand on the way. On a service of 188 km / h from Sinner, he hit an unlikely return at 169 km / h.

The two remaining quarter finals will be played on Thursday. The Greek second seed Stefanos Tsitsipas (ATP 5) faces the Pole Hubert Hurkacz (ATP 37). The fourth seeded Russian Andrey Rublev (ATP 8) will then meet the American Sebastian Korda (ATP 87).
