Antalya, Turkey, 28 June 2019 | AAP /

Australian No.3 Jordan Thompson has moved into the semifinals of the ATP Antalya Open after his opponent was forced to retire ill on Thursday.

Third seed Thompson – one of the 13-strong Australian contingent preparing for the looming Wimbledon championships main draw – was leading 7-5 1-0 when Bosnian defending champion Damir Dzumhur was forced to bow out due to a stomach complaint.

Thompson will now face Miomir Kecmanovic in Friday’s semifinal, following the Serbian’s 6-3 6-4 win over Viktor Troicki.

Fellow Australian Bernard Tomic missed out on a last-four berth at the Turkish grasscourt tournament, however, when he lost 6-7(7) 6-4 6-4 to fourth seed Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta.

Carreno Busta next takes on Italy’s Lorenzo Sonego, a 3-6 7-6(3) 6-3 winner over second seed Adrian Mannarino of France.
