Rublev, 23, is the only seed left in the tournament after other top seeds Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and Roger Federer made early exits.AdvertisementAdvertisementRussian Rublev fired nine aces, 29 winners, won 82per cent of his first serve points and did not concede a single break point against the 2011 champion.

"I am happy with my performance to reach the semi-finals for the first time," Rublev said."The first set was really tough. He was 3-0 up in the tiebreak and I came back, which was the key."After the first set, I think he mentally went down and I was pumped up. I hit a couple of good returns in the first game of the second set." headtopics.com
