Alejandro Davidovich Fokina at the 2022 Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters.
Day 8 of the 2022 Monte-Carlo Masters will see players vying for a spot in the championship round.
The day will begin with the doubles semifinals. The top-seeded duo of Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury will square off against the Indo-Brit pairing of Rohan Bopanna and Jamie Murray.
Grigor Dimitrov and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina will take the court after that for their last-four clash. Davidovich Fokina wasn’t the Spaniard everyone expected to make the semifinals when the draw was made. But with compatriot Carlos Alcaraz making an early exit, the 22-year-old upset players like Novak Djokovic and Taylor Fritz to reach this stage.
While Dimitrov has already won multiple titles throughout his career, Davidovich Fokina is aiming to reach his maiden ATP final.
The second singles semifinal hasn’t been decided at the time of writing. Alexander Zverev and Jannik Sinner are currently battling it out on the court. Defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas is up against Diego Schwartzman in the last quarterfinal of the day and the duo are still waiting for their match to begin.
The final match of Day 8 will be the other doubles semifinal. The sixth-seeded duo of Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah have already booked their spot in the final four.
