MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

ATP Tour – Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022 final results

You would have expected Félix Auger-Aliassime and Stefanos Tsitsipas, who played each other last Sunday in the Rotterdam final, to meet again Saturday in the Marseille semis.

Except … qualifier Roman Safiullin came along and spoiled the rematch by upsetting Tsitsipas, the No. 1 seed, in straight sets in the quarterfinals on Friday.

It was a gruelling one, but Auger-Aliassime is into his second consecutive final.
