ATP News: ATP roundup: Shintaro Mochizuki stuns Taylor Fritz in Tokyo


Japanese wild card Shintaro Mochizuki repeatedly rallied for a thrilling knockout of No. 1 seed Taylor Fritz on Thursday at the Japan Open in Tokyo.

The 20-year-old took a goose egg in the first set and trailed 2-5 in the third before completing an unlikely 0-6, 6-4, 7-6 (2) victory in just over two hours for his first career top-10 win.

Mochizuki will look to continue his dream run on home soil in the quarterfinals against Australia’s Alexei Popyrin, who outlasted Chile’s Cristian Garin 4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2 in the Round of 16.

Fourth-seeded Alex de Minaur faced only one break point in a 6-0, 7-5 win against Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman. He will face Russia’s Aslan Karatsev, a 6-3, 6-4 winner over China’s Zhang Zhizhen.

European Open

Frenchman Hugo Gaston, the 96th-ranked player in the world, upset second seed Jan-Lennard Struff, ranked 27th, in the round of 16 in Antwerp, Belgium.

Gaston emerged from a battle, 5-7, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (11), despite Germany’s Struff having a 15-9 advantage in aces. Gaston converted three of eight break points to just 4 of 16 for Struff.

Top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece dispatched Botic van de Zandschulp of the Netherlands, 7-5, 6-3. Fifth seed Yannick Hanfmann of Germany eliminated Dominic Thiem of Austria, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, and qualifier Maximilian Marterer of Germany defeated Nuno Borges of Portugal, 6-3, 7-6 (3).

BNP Paribas Nordic Open

Elias Ymer won in his home country, knocking off qualifier Dino Prizmic of Croatia, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 in the Round of 16 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Ymer is ranked 168th in the world, Prizmic 165th. Ymer converted six of nine break points, Prizmic was 4 of 5.

The other three singles matches Thursday went two sets. Second seed Adrian Mannarino of France downed Russia’s Roman Safiullin 6-4, 6-4; Tomas Machac of the Czech Republic got the better of Switzerland’s Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 6-1; and Gael Monfils of France defeated qualifier Filip Misolic of Austria, 6-4, 6-3.
