In a winner-takes-all blockbuster at the Pala Alpitour, the American clawed past Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime 7-6(4), 6-7(5), 6-2 to reach the semi-finals on debut at the prestigious year-end event.

Both entered the match holding a 1-1 record in Green Group, aiming to join Casper Ruud in the last four. In front of an electric crowd, Fritz effectively executed his aggressive game as he handled the pressure in the crucial moments to advance after two hours and 44 minutes battle.

Both the players were strong on their serve as they took the first two sets into tie-breaker. Even the two sets were not enough to separate the two players as while Fritz won the first set tie-breaker, it was Aliassime, who held his nerve to take the contest into the deciding set.

In the third set after both the players held on to their service games with Fritz leading 3-2, the American finally managed to break Aliassime to lead 4-2. From then on it was a one-way traffic as Fritz won the next two games to win the contest.

“I needed to serve well the whole time, I knew that,” Fritz said. “It was frustrating throughout the match when so many points I was one away from break point. So many times at 15/30, 0/30 when I was returning, I got myself in the points and kept losing the points. I just tried to stay patient and not get frustrated and then I capitalised when I got the chances.”

“It is huge,” Fritz said when asked about reaching the semi-finals. “From possibly not even qualifying to now be in the semis feels great. I felt like I was going to play well here. I feel that I always play my best tennis against the best players.”
