Fifth victory in seven games for Arthur Rinderknech. The 26-year-old Frenchman dominated his compatriot Corentin Moutet (6-1, 6-3) in the semi-finals of the ATP 250 tournament in Adelaide on Friday, and is preparing to play his first final on the ATP circuit. The current 58th player in the world will meet in the final Saturday the Croatian Marin Cilic or the Australian local Thanasi Kokkinakis, two days before the start of the Australian Open in Melbourne, where he will be opposed in the first round to another “Aussie”, Alexei Popyrin.

Rinderknech, selected for the ATP Cup contested last week in Sydney, confirms his excellent start to the season. Faced with Moutet (115th worldwide), he flew over the match: dominant on his serve, on which he lost only three points, he was also on the service of his opponent, since he won more than half of the points back. We’ll have to confirm that in Melbourne now.
