Lorenzo Sonego’s dream stopped at the Argentina Open semifinal. The seventh of the Turin tennis player’s career. The Argentine Diego Schwartzman, who had beaten his compatriot Cerundolo in the quarter-finals, shattered the Italian hopes. Now, after having eliminated Lorenzo in three sets (7-5, 3-6, 6-2), he flies to the final where he will face the Norwegian Ruud, number 8 in the world.
