Millman in quarters


AUSTRALIAN John Millman has progressed to his fifth ATP Tour quarter-final of the season after winning his way through to the final eight at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow

The 32-year-old took more than two hours to secure a hard-fought 6-1 5-7 6-4 victory against Ukrainian qualifier Illya Marchenko to keep the Aussie flag flying at the event.

Fellow Australian James Duckworth lost his secondroun­d encounter, with Ajla Tomljanovi­c also bundled out in three sets in the women’s singles.

Millman, the world No.58, will have to defeat Russian local hope Karen Khachanov to progress.
