Incredible scenes.

Alund keeps choking at the end of matches and somehow winning anyway.

Fairytale run here for the guy

Saw some of the match and Filo was looking awful 0 energy, with difficulties to run the court like he usually does and on defensive mode for too long..

Alund is a solid claycourter but doesn't bring anything special to offer, good FH and decent serve + a very attackable and not too reliable BH. Still congrats to the guy, for sure this must be a super special moment for him after such an amazing run coming in as LL.

hilarious

on the challenger tour alund was called "mr semifinal" because this stage was, despite he could even be superior to the opponent, where he was losing/choking

now he made a SF at ATP level, good for him, career highlight! (even if i'm personally not a fan... quite boring game)

That's Alund. The ATP website has just gotten a picture of him up on the site.

Alund, who's never won a Challenger (IIRC) and in only his second ATP tournament making the Top 100? Wow.

Alund haha

the first match I watched in my hometown challenger was Alund vs Lindellin the qualifier and this mito won in 3 sets
Now he will reach top 100.

Crazy guy, peaking at 27.

Amazing! Alund dream seems not to have an end! What an amazing week for him reaching a SF in an ATP tournament and now having the chance to face Nadal. He wouldn't have dream it even in his worst nightmare
