Gael Monfils has won 93 per cent of points on his first serve to reach the semi-finals of the Sofia Open with a 6-3 7-6 (5) win over emerging Greek talent Stefanos Tsitsipas.

With the confidence from the win, Daniil Medvedev will be very hard to stop.
However, Krajinovic - a Paris Masters finalist in 2017 following a surprising run from the qualifying rounds - broke back, took the tiebreaker and then led 5-4 and 40-15 in the third.
