Carlos Alcaraz has shown that he still needs time to get back to his best form. The former world number one won the second consecutive game without convincing from a performance point of view and reached the semifinals of the ATP 500 tournament in Barcelona by beating Alejandro Davidovich Fokina 7-6(5), 6-4.

Alcaraz thwarted twice the lead break gained in the first set and also played the tie-break with indecision. A very balanced decisive tie-break from a clumsy forehand missed by Davidovich Fokina at 5-6. Even in the second half of the game, Alcaraz continued to do and undo the good capitalized in response.

Both held their serve without worries from the sixth to the ninth game, when Davidovich Fokina suddenly came out of the match and gave Alcaraz a double fault and a not impossible forehand at 30-30. Stefanos Tsitsipas also advances to the semifinals on Spanish clay-courts.

The Greek is increasingly taking on the semblance of his original version and has dominated the game far and wide with Alex de Minaur. The Australian lost for the ninth time out of nine against his bete noire Tsitsipas. It will be the Greek who will face Lorenzo Musetti in the penultimate act of the tournament.
