Qualifier Jerzy Janowicz is through to his first Masters 1000 semifinal after world No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic retired late in their quarterfinal match. The 21-year-old moves on to face France's Gilles Simon in the next round.
World N. 69 Jerzy Janowicz continued his dream run at the Masters 1000 Paris, having rallied to reach a 4-1 final-set advantage over world No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic. The 21-year-old qualifier converted four of 8 break points to secure his first Tour-level semi this season.
With the quarterfinal level at a set apiece, Janowicz broke serve at 1-1 and 3-1 in the decider. Tipsarevic, who had not won a return point in the set, called time at the one-hour, 48-minute mark.
Janowicz completed the match with 33 winners and nine aces.
He will take on France's Gilles Simon for a place in the championship final. Simon defeated 5th seed Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals, 6-4, 6-4.
