ATP Geneva 2016 order of play for Friday, May 20 - Semi-final action at Geneva today

Suneer Chowdhary in News 20 May 2016
Stan Wawrinka will take court for his semi-final on Friday.

Action from the 2016 ATP Geneva is coming your way on Friday, May 20 with David Ferrer and Stan Wawrinka heading the semi-final draw.

Second seeded wildcard entrant Ferrer will take on third seeded Marin Cilic who also entered the tournament on a wildcard. Ferrer began his journey here against Denis Istomin in the second round following a bye in the first round.

The Spaniard was completely outplayed for the majority of the contest and was close to losing but Istomin retired midway through the second set to hand the rights of passage to Ferrer. He was up against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the quarterfinals and was able to tame his compatriot in straight sets.

Cilic defeated Federico Delbonis in straight sets in the quarterfinal here following a similar result in the second round fixture against Ernests Gulbis. He too had a bye in the first round. The Croatian has won just two previous meetings against the Spaniard with Ferrer winning four contests.

Top seeded Swiss Wawrinka will be up against Lukas Rosol of Czech Republic in the second semi-final later in the afternoon at the court central. The home favourite started with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the second round here following a bye in the first round. He followed it up with a 6-6, 6-1 win over Pablo Carreno Busta in Thursday’s quarterfinal.

Rosol started with a straight sets win over Roberto Ortega-Olmedo in the first round. He went on to defeat John Isner in three sets in the second round. It was a tight contest that ended 5-7, 7-6(5), 7-6(5) in favour of the Czech. Rosol was up against Andrey Kuznetsov in the quarterfinal. He dropped the first set but played a whirlwind second and third set to make it into the semis.

Wawrinka has won all three previous meetings against this opponent however and will start as the favourite to make Saturday’s grand finale.
