ATP Doha: Andy Murray and Danill Medvedev won, the semifinals highlights

At the ATP tournament in Doha, Daniil Medvedev keeps the result unchanged and with a double 6-4 he reaches the second consecutive final on the ATP Tour, after last week's. Nothing doing for Felix Auger Aliassime. The Russian tennis player will find an eternal Andy Murray, who wins the first set 6-0 against Jiri Lehecka and then finds himself forced to the tie break of the third set to get the fifth final of his career in Qatar.

Below the semifinals highlights: The path of the Scottish champion at the ATP 250 tournament in Doha, regardless of the last verdict, represents the symbol of an uncommon strength and resilience.

The former world number one managed to surpass the feat accomplished against Lorenzo Sonego and reached the seventy-first final of his career by canceling five match points from Jiri Lehecka. Murray explained: "I have no idea how he managed to turn this game around.

I think I played most of the match points very well; he made a bad mistake at 5-4. There were many ups and downs during the tiebreaker as well. It's been an incredible start to the season, something I've never experienced in my career.

I trained well in the two weeks before reaching Doha, but this week too could have ended very differently. I had to save several match points in the first round and could have lost to Alexander Zverev or tonight. I have shown that I have confidence in my game, which I have lacked for a while.

Eight match points saved in the tournament? Let's not talk about something I've done every week of my career. It's something I've never experienced before. To have these experiences at my age and at this point in my career is fantastic.

When people ask me why I keep playing or what I'm trying to achieve in these last years of my career, I answer: To experience moments like this. I haven't experienced many in recent years, but I have continued to work and believe in myself.

Of course there is also a little luck. But above all, work and self-confidence."
