Will Daniel Elahi Galan continue to cause shocking upsets here in Chile as he meets the title favourite and No.1 seed in the semi finals, or will Cristian Garin put Galan in his place and make his way to his home tournament Final?
Daniel Elahi Galan shocked on Friday, beating the very experienced and solid Roberto Carballes Baena in the quarter finals in straight sets 7-6/6-3. Galan is just playing with house money right now as there was no way in hell he should have ever reached these rounds in the tournament, but here we are. Galan is playing freely now as he knows that if he loses he has still done good, which takes the pressure off of him in tight moments in matches. Can Galan cause the biggest upset of the week by knocking out the no.1 seed and title favourite Cristian Garin in the semi finals?
Cristian Garin has been cruising through his two matches here, winning both of them in straight sets quite comfortably. Garin met Juan Pablo Varillas in the quarter finals, beating the Canadian in straight sets 6-4/6-4. Garin is so close, but still far from winning his home tournament title in front of his home fans, and he will be very determined to keep his foot on the pedal as he knows that an upset is always a possibility if he lets himself relax a bit throughout matches. Can Garin make his way to the final?
This is going to be the first meeting between both players and unfortunately for Daniel Elahi Galan, this is going to be a quick match which will knock out the anomaly here in the tournament. Cristian Garin is in great form, and he is very determined to win his 5th career title by winning his home tournament. Garin will come out here determined to get on top quickly and not let go of the lead as soon as he has it. Cristian Garin in Straight Sets.
