Seppi, Barty into Sydney semis

Friday, 11 January 2019

SYDNEY, Jan 10 (AFP): Veteran Andreas Seppi derailed on Thursday top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas' Sydney International title hopes, while homegrown rising star Ashleigh Barty claimed another top scalp to also make the semi-finals.
Seppi, 14 years older than his 20-year-old Greek opponent, has only won three ATP titles in his career, but called on all his experience as he battled back for a gutsy 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 win.
Australia has been a home away from home for the Italian in recent years.
