Ahead of their semi-final, the pair were seen training together, and it was shared by Tennis TV on X, formerly known as Twitter. Here is the video:

They have faced each other seven times in official competitions, with Sinner leading 4-3 in head-to-head. They last faced each other in Beijing in 2023, where Sinner won. In the same year, they faced each other two more times, with Sinner winning once and Alcarazz coming out on top on one occasion. Their first-ever meeting was in ATP Masters 1000 Paris in 2021, where Alcaraz clinched victory.

Sinner is currently in a 19-match winning streak that stretches back through last year’s Davis Cup finals. His perfect record in 2024 consists of a maiden Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, and also a title at Rotterdam last month.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Alcaraz said, “Honestly, I don’t know how I’m going to approach the match. He’s the best tennis player in the world right now, without a doubt. He’s playing unbelievable. No losses this year. So, it’s going to be a really difficult match. It’s going to be a big challenge for me to see what my level is facing him.”

In the other men’s semi-final, Daniil Medvedev will take on Tommy Paul. Meanwhile in the women’s singles category, Maria Sakkari defeated Coco Gauff in her semi-final clash, and will face Iga Swiatek, who defeated Marta Kostyuk.
