American Frances Tiafoe plays Sweden's Mikael Ymer from 5.30am (AEST) before Frenchman Ugo Humbert and Italy's Jannick Sinner complete the round robin phase of the tournament.

In the semifinals, Tiafoe will face top-seeded Alex de Minaur of Australia, who beat fourth-seeded Casper Ruud of Norway 4-1, 4-0, 4-2 on Thursday to win Group A with a flawless 3-0 record. These conditions make it a bit tougher in the sense that things can change directions really quickly, so I feel like you've got to be constantly focused.

"I love this event and I want to stay".

De Minaur will learn his semi-final opponent later on Friday morning at the completion of the final two Group B matches. I didn't play badly, he just played well in the important moments. I feel like I play great tennis here. He will play Kecmanovic to decide who reaches the final. You know, that's just me, my opinion.


The other semifinal pits Group A runner-up and fifth seed Miomir Kecmanovic of Serbia against eight-seeded Italian Jannik Sinner, the Group B victor.

It was the first win for an Italian at the event, which is in its third year.

Davidovich Fokina took the first set and went the distance but came up short in a 3-4 (2-7) 4-3 (7-2) 4-2 3-4 (2-7) 4-1 loss to the Norwegian. "I watched his matches", Kecmanovic said of Sinner. "I'm feeling good." SCHEDULE, FRIDAY 8 NOVEMBER 2019 ALLIANZ CLOUD COURT start 7:00 pm [1] A.de Minaur (AUS) vs [2] F. Tiafoe (USA) Not Before 9:00 pm [8] [WC] J. Sinner (ITA) vs [5] M.
