Tsitsipas and Rublev set up Monte-Carlo Masters final showdown
Stefanos Tsitsipas was the first one to step onto the court and he completely demolished Evans. The match lasted 70 minutes and Tsitsipas was able to come out on top with 6-2 6-1. The Brit tried his best but his game got completely exposed by Tsitsipas who was playing great.
Evans had moments where he managed to win a rally or two but the Greek dominated the match with his baseline shots who are both stronger and more precise than those of Evans. In the end, it was more than enough to secure a spot in his first Monte-Carlo Masters final.
He will be joined in the final by Andrey Rublev who also had a very good day at the office. Facing somewhat of a stronger clay player in Ruud, Rublev looked comfortable in this match from start to finish. After enduring an early loss of serve the Russian started playing much better.
He dominated points with his strong serve and Rublev could not handle his intensity most of the times. Rublev was able to cover the court well hitting winners. He did have a shaky 2nd set where he initially had a 2-0 lead before surrendering four games in a row to make it 2-4.
He would pick up his play by starting to hit the ball harder and Ruud could simply not replicate the same level of tennis. Rublev would secure a 7-5 2nd set win for a place in his first ATP 1000 Masters final.
