Hubert Hurkacz put together a thrilling comeback Thursday to record a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over second-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas to advance to the Miami Open semifinals. Hurkacz, the 26th seed, was dominated in the first set and trailed 0-2, 15-40 in the second before turning things around in his quarterfinal victory. “I was just trying to stay competitive,” Hurkacz told the Tennis Channel. “I knew if I could make those shots that I was missing, I could turn it around.” The 24-year-old Pole certainly did just that, as he saved 10 of 13 break points en route to the impressive victory. His semi-final opponent will be the winner of Thursday night’s clash between fourth-seeded Russian Andrey Rublev and American Sebastian Korda. Hurkacz registered 15 aces compared to Tsitsipas’ seven. He had seven aces in the second set and five in the third. Greece’s Tsitsipas was one point away from winning his sixth game in a row before Hurkacz came off the hole to win six of the last seven games in the second set. Tsitsipas held a 2-1 lead in the final set before Hurkacz won the next three games en route to completing the superb rally. “It‘s the quarterfinal of a Masters (1000) series, so you will do your best and fight to the end, and that’s what I did,” Hurkacz said. – Field level media
