Daniil Medvedev Beat Fifth-Seeded Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas

Daniil Medvedev beat fifth-seeded Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets in a rain-interrupted Italian Open Semi-Final.

The Russian third seed, who had not won a match in three previous appearances in Rome, advanced to his maiden clay-court ATP masters 1000 final with a 7-5 7-5 victory in one-hour and 47 minutes.

After two rain delays, Medvedev will face Holger Rune in the final after the Danish seventh seed earlier defeated Casper Ruud of Norway, seeded fourth, 6-7(2) 6-4 6-2.
