Frances Tiafoe, who is an American qualifier has came back from a set and 3-0 down to beat Jannik Sinner and reach the ATP final in Vienna on Saturday 30th Oct 2021, crediting his triumph to delivering jokes to the Austrian audience.
Tiafoe who is the world number 49, advanced to his first final of the season with a 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 victory over Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, who was defeated 6-3, 6-3 by German second seed Alexander. He couldn’t hold off a powerful Zverev, who won with an ace after one hour and eight minutes.
It has been a long week for me,” said Tiafoe after taking 11 of the last 13 games against Italian Sinner, the champion in Antwerp last weekend and chasing a spot in the ATP Finals.
I tried to have fun with it and get the crowd involved and could see if he would get a little nervous.
I know how to get the crowd behind me, few jokes and that and then I started to play unbelievably. The crowd made the difference. I felt because of them I started to lock in harder.
Number four in the world In straight sets, Zverev put a stop to Alcaraz’s Austrian journey.
On his route to his first-ever ATP 500 semi-final appearance, the 18-year-old Alcaraz stole the show this week.
He upset Wimbledon runner-up Matteo Berrettini 6-1, 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (7/5) in the quarter-finals on Friday by holding his nerve in the fourth set tiebreak.
