In the first semifinal of the men's singles in Tokyo 2021, an excellent Karen Khachanov avenges his countryman Daniil Medvedev and he beats the favorite on the eve of the match, Pablo Carreno Busta, with a double 6-3 thanks to three breaks that annihilate the Spaniard.
With this victory Khachanov is certainly silver medal reaching one of the most prestigious results of his career. In the final the Russian will meet the German Alexander Zverev, who, in the most anticipated match of the day, defeated Novak Djokovic in three sets.
Ends the positive streak of Nole who had just returned from victories at Roland Garros and Wimbledon. Thus ends the Golden Slam dream for the Serbian, who is now anxiously awaiting the US Open. Meanwhile Djokovic will play on Sunday morning the final for the bronze medal against the Spanaird Pablo Carreno Busta: Nole already won an Olympic bronze medal, at the Beijing 2008.
