Tim narrowly qualifies for the semi-finals and is waiting for Nadal or Zverev


Paris – Austrian Dominic Tim, ranked fourth in the world, came from a group to a difficult victory over American John Eisner (39 in the world) 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the semifinals of the Madrid Masters Tour on Friday for a thousand points.
Tim is awaiting in the golden box a retaliatory confrontation with Spaniard Rafael Nadal, who dropped him in the 2017 final, or German Alexander Zverev, who denied him the title in 2018, who meet later.
Tim, looking for his eighteenth title in his professional career, came out as the second in the Masters, winning the third time in his fourth confrontation with Isner, where the only victory for the American came in Beijing in 2015.
Isner (36 years) was the man of the overwhelming mission, eliminated the Russian seventh-seeded Russian Andrei Rublev in the final price, paying 29 aces.
“He is one of the best shippers in history, especially here at this height, the ball bounces high and it is difficult to return it … I was surprised by his response to the balls,” said Tim (27 years), a runner-up at Roland Garros in 2018 and 2019.
“The momentum changed when I saved three break-game chances in the second set,” the US Open champion continued on the expense of Zverev.
Although Isner scored more than twice the winning strikes that Tim paid (44 to 20), the latter benefited from the many direct mistakes of the American (26 against 10).
Isner, who won 15 titles in his professional career, ended the match with 18 aces to two for the Austrian. – (AFP)
