Stockholm, Sweden

Alex de Minaur has recorded his fifth top-20 win of the season to move into the Stockholm Open semifinals.

The fifth-seeded Australian scored a 6-2 7-6(4) victory against world No.20 Denis Shapovalov in quarterfinal action at the ATP 250 tournament.

De Minaur won 80 per cent of first serve points in the one-hour and 39-minute battle, helping him post a fourth consecutive victory against the 23-year-old Canadian.

This propels De Minaur into his fifth ATP semifinal of the season.

The world No.23 now faces Danish teen Holger Rune for a place in the final. The 19-year-old Danish player knocked out world No.14 Cameron Norrie in the quarterfinals.

It will be De Minaur’s first career meeting with world No.27 Rune.
