by ATP Staff|
Dominic Thiem, the youngest player in the Top 50 of the Emirates ATP Rankings, kept alive Austria’s hopes of a homegrown champion at the bet-at-home Cup Kitzbühel on Friday when he reached his first ATP World Tour semi-final.
Fifth seed Thiem, who was ranked No. 268 at the ATP World Tour 250 tournament last year, knocked out second seed and defending champion Marcel Granollers 6-4, 7-5 mid-afternoon. Later today, the World No. 50 will face 2007 titlist Juan Monaco, who was a 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 quarter-final winner over fourth seed Andreas Seppi.
