ORIGINAL SOURCE – Fritz Upsets Bautista Agut In Lyon; Paire Beats Shapovalov

American Taylor Fritz recorded his fourth Top 30 win of the season on Thursday for a place in the Open Parc Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes Lyon semi-finals.

The 21-year-old broke a two-match losing streak against second-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut, this year’s Qatar Exxon Mobil Open champion (d. Berdych), in a 6-7(6), 6-3, 6-4 victory over two hours and five minutes. Fritz struck 16 aces and lost just 10 of his first-service points (44/54).

Bautista Agut saved one set point at 5/6 in the first set tie-break, before Fritz bounced back to take a 3-0 lead in the second set. The World No. 46 broke in the ninth game of the decider en route to a place in his first ATP Tour semi-final since October 2018 at the Chengdu Open (l. to Fognini).

Fritz now plays France’s Benoit Paire, the Grand Prix Hassan II titlist (d. Andujar), who held his nerve to overcome third-seeded Canadian Denis Shapovalov 6-3, 4-6, 7-6(4) in one hour and 55 minutes.
