Young Russians Daniil Medvedev and Karen Khachanov, earmarked to be future Grand Slam winners, meet in the semi-finals of the ATP Masters 1000 in Montreal on Saturday, August 10.
Russian Khachanov had a breakthrough 2018 and was branded as one of the players to watch out for among the upcoming next generation, after winning his first ATP 1000 Masters in Paris. Tournament director Eugène Lapierre said this was the first year the event had insurance to cover losses from weather-related cancellations.
"I lost (the first set) 6-2 with the feeling I was not playing bad, no negative feelings on the ball, just things (were) going too fast", Nadal said, quoted by the ATP Tour website. "It should be a great match".
"With all the travelling and short transition, two very tough matches yesterday (Thursday) and two days ago, I think the battery was empty today". Medvedev and Khachanov will square off in one of the semi-final matches on Saturday.
Nadal improved to 12-4 in his career against Fognini, who snapped a six-match losing streak against the Spaniard on the way to winning in Monte Carlo back in April. "I was not on my 100 per cent", he said.
Thiem went down to Medvedev with 21 unforced errors and no chance at a break point.
"I was happy that I was able to play so well, to beat him so easily", Medvedev said. It saved me a lot of energy.
"But he has great momentum, playing unbelievable, especially on these hard courts. It gave me a lot of confidence, so I'm very happy".
