Belgrade GP: Rapport escapes, reaches final

Maxime Vachier-Lagrave got good winning chances but could not bounce back in his match against Richard Rapport at the semifinals of the FIDE Grand Prix in Belgrade. Rapport’s resilient defence made him the first finalist of the event. The Hungarian will get a rest day before facing either Anish Giri or Dmitry Andreikin in the final. Giri and Andreikin drew both their semifinal games and will play a rapid and blitz tiebreaker on Friday. | Photos: Mark Livshitz
