Ben Shelton and Ugo Humbert are into the Cagliari Challenger semi-finals after solid wins on Friday joining David Goffin and Andy Murray who also won yesterday.
It was a very eventful day yesterday on the Challenger Tour. We saw a couple of high-profile players playing earning victories. Ben Shelton once again played a very late match in Cagliari but the American added yet another win on clay showing himself to be a rather solid player on the surface.
Having played on it for a while makes him a lot of more confident in his abilities on it. Another winner in Cagliari was Humbert who took down Taro after four hours of play which will make his day in the office today quite miserable. It almost became the longest best-of-three match of all time falling short by about 20ish minutes.
David Goffin proved better than his opponent at the Aix Challenger in the beautiful region of France called Provance. The Belgian will try to book a final later today and he might just play Andy Murray who is in the second-semifinal after a solid win yesterday. Speaking about his match yesterday, Murray said:
“It was a very tough end to the match, it could’ve gone either way. Had it gone to a third set, it would’ve been tough for me, after a long match yesterday. I just managed to get over the line in the end. I did quite well considering I recovered well from yesterday, which is really positive.”
