Paire storms into Chennai semi-finals

Benoit Paire is into the semi-finals of the Chennai Open thanks to a 6-3 6-0 demolition of Britain’s Aljaz Bedene.

He will face second-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain, who rallied to win 2-6 6-4 6-4 against seventh-seeded Russian Mikhail Youzhny.

Daniil Medvedev of Russia advanced to his first ATP semis after stopping Slovak qualifier Jozef Kovalik 6-1 6-4.

Kovalik ousted world No. 6 Marin Cilic on Wednesday in his first match against a top-10 player but couldn’t reproduce that form.

Medvedev will next play Dudi Sela, the Israeli who reached his first ATP semis since July 2014 after downing third-seeded Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain 7-5 6-4 in their first meeting.
