Only eight girls and boys remain in the tournament. The surprises, Sinja Kraus and Max Wiskandt, are the only players in the semi-finals who are not seeded. During Friday they will attempt to beat the favourites.
It’s getting closer to the end of this year’s edition of Kungens Kanna & Drottningens Pris. During Friday four semi-finals will be played and the finalists announced.
In the girls’ single, the three best ranked players are still in the tournament. Not many people expected that the Austrian, Sinja Kraus would go this far, not even the player herself. In the quarterfinal Kraus defeated Federica Sacco in straight sets.
– It was a really tough match. Both played well but I was a little bit better, Kraus says, and continues:
– It’s a little bit surprising to be in the semi-finals. I did not expect that.
On the boys single, all players in the semi-finals are seeded except the German, Max Wiskandt who defeated the Serbian Viktor Jovic. Remarkably, the Frenchman Arthur Cazaux beat the third seed Alibek Kachmazov in three tough sets.
Frayman Daria (1) – Kamilla Bartone (3) Maybe the two best players in the girls single. I think Bartones aggressive game can break Fraymans strong defensive, which is going take the Latvian to the final.
Sinja Kraus – Romana Cisovska (2) Kraus’s winning streak will most likely end here. I predict that Cisovska will win in straight sets.
Petr Kapuskin (9) – Max Wiskandt Two tall players. Kapuskin is the favorite out of the two with a more consistent and stable playing style.
Arthur Cazaux (11) – Dawid Taczala (2) Cazaux moves incredibly well but I believe Taczala is going to win this match in three tight sets.
