Mikhail Kukushkin from Kazakhstan defeated eighteen-year-old Italian and a wild card holder Yannick Sinner in two sets – 6/3, 7/6 (4).

 In 1 hour 39 minutes, the winner of the match broke the resistance of the young Italian. Kukushkin did not make any double fault and only fired only one an ace. In the tie-breaker of the second set, Sinner came back from 1/4, but his opponent was still stronger and won – 6/7 (4).

In the next match, Mikhail Kukushkin will play against the winner of the match Damir Dzumhur vs Janko Tipsarevich.

“St. Petersburg Open is a very strong tournament. The next round will be hard. Damir [Dzumhur] has already won here, Tipsarevic also plays great! Every opponent here can win the tournament! It was a very difficult match for me”, Mikhail commented on his victory.
