Tennis: Medvedev gives up, Lehecka in semi-finals

Medvedev, treated for the first time off the court after only five games, and again massaged in the upper right thigh two games later, gave up after losing the first set 6-4 in around forty minutes. The 28-year-old Russian was clearly hampered in his movements and his support.

At the age of 22, Lehecka entered the semi-finals of a Masters 1000 for the first time. In the previous round, the robust Czech with a powerful serve - capable of exceeding 230 km/h - had brought down Rafael Nadal, for the very last participation of the Spanish champion in the Madrid tournament.

For a place in the final, Lehecka will face the Canadian Félix Auger-Aliassime (35th), who benefited from the withdrawal of world No.2 Jannik Sinner, painful right hip, on the eve of their quarter-final scheduled for Thursday.
