Stefanos Tsitsipas got serious about patching up his game as the Greek reached his first semi-final since August with a quarter-final win in Antwerp on Friday.

Tsitsipas, who last got this far on the Tour when he won Los Cabos two months ago;after that success he won four matches and lost five on the Tour.

But luck appeared to change for the two-time Grand Slam finalist as he returned to Europe this week after a disappointing 1-2 finish during the autumn Asian swing.

The top seed advanced past German Yannick Hanfmann 6-3, 6-3 and is also alive with brother Petros in doubles at the indoor venue.

“When you play on the Tour, you don’t get to do this very often,” Tsitsipas said.

“It has its own satisfaction, getting to do both. It’s good that I can play so good in both draws. 

“I’m happy I’m doing it with Petros. I think we can really enjoy out there and take this opportunity to play good tennis.”
