Zhang Zhizhen stuns Fritz to be 1st Chinese man to reach ATP 1000 quarters

Chinese tennis player Zhang Zhizhen made history by becoming the first Chinese player to reach the quarter-finals of an ATP Masters 1000 event after beating American player Taylor Fritz in the Madrid Open. Zhang, ranked world No. 99, saved three match points in a tie-break to win 3-6, 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (10/8) against world No. 10 Fritz. He will face Russian player Aslan Karatsev in the quarter-finals. If Zhang defeats Karatsev, he is projected to become the highest-ranked Chinese man in history, surpassing Wu Yibing who reached world No. 55 earlier this year.
