The European Open has remained on course for its anticipated final with the top two seeds, Jannik Sinner and Diego Schwartzman, easing into the semi-finals with straight-sets wins.
Italy’s Sinner cruised past Arthur Rinderknech, of France, 6-4, 6-2 in 78 minutes. Argentina’s Schwartzman swept aside Brandon Nakashima, of United States, 6-4, 6-2, by the same score, albeit it took him 18 minutes longer.
In the last four Sinner will play No.7 seed Lloyd Harris, of South Africa, who defeated Hungary’s Marton Fucsovics 6-2, 7-5.
Schwartzman wil face either American qualifier Jenson Brooksby or unseeded Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, of Spain.
