Tennis: Arthur Fils stopped in the quarterfinals in Hong Kong

The young Frenchman Arthur Fils lost in three sets against the Russian Andrey Rublev (6-4, 1-6, 6-2) Friday in the quarter-final of the ATP 250 tournament in Hong Kong. The world number 5 will face in the semi-final the Chinese Juncheng Shang (183rd), who defeated the American Frances Tiafoe, seeded 3, in the previous round, and who benefited from an invitation to take part in the Hong Kong tournament. .

Arthur Fils, 19, put up good resistance to the quarter-finalist of the last Australian Open, notably winning the second set with ease (6-1). But Rublev regained control of the match in the third set, taking Fils' serve to quickly lead 3-0. The finalist of the last ATP Next Gen tournament in December narrowly missed the Russian, conceding 18 unforced errors.

After a successful year 2023 and marked by a great rise in the ATP rankings, since he went from 249th place in the world to 36th, Fils did not manage to raise the bar against Rublev, whom he challenged for the first time . The other semi-final will pit the Austrian Sebastian Ofner (43rd) against the Finnish Emil Ruusuvuori (69th).
