33-year-old Chardy is the lowest-ranked player at this stage, but his form at Antalya says the opposite story. The Frenchmen comes into the semifinals after defeating two of the best players in the tournament. Chardy defeated fifth seed Jan-Lennard Struff in the quarterfinals in three sets 4-6, 6-2, 7-6(10).

This high-profile win will surely boost Bublik’s confidence. Both these men will surely play a fascinating contest of a match in the semifinals.
