Auger-Aliassime defeated Brandon Nakashima in straight sets in what turned out to be a fairly straightforward quarterfinal victory. Felix Auger-Aliassime won 6-3, 6-4 in an hour and 29 minutes, growing into the match after a slow start. Auger-Aliassime, who needed three sets to beat Oscar Otte in the first round, dropped his serve in the first game of the match but never again. Instead, he broke the San Diego Open champion twice in the first set to take the lead, and then again in the first game of the second set to seal the victory. That was all he needed, as he only lost seven points on his own serve in the second set to carve out the victory.
Lorenzo Musetti, who is better known for his strength on clay, has already reached his second consecutive semi final on indoor hardcourt surfaces this month. In doing so, he evicted American Mackenzie McDonald. Musetti defeated McDonald 6-3, 6-2 in an hour and 17 minutes, following up on another easy victory in the previous round over Bernabe Zapata Miralles. This was following his first-round bye. Musetti, who reached this stage two weeks ago in Sofia, raced out to a 4-0 lead in the first set before dropping his serve for the first and only time in the match. That didn’t stop him from winning the set after saving two break points in the next service game.
