World No. 25 Karen Khachanov has secured either a gold or silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics after defeating Pablo Carreno Busta in the semi-finals.

Khachanov, who is representing the Russian Olympic Committee at the Games, defeated the Spaniard 6-3 6-3 to earn the first spot in the men’s singles gold-medal match.

The tournament’s No. 12 seed will face either Novak Djokovic or Alexander Zverev, who face off on Friday in the other semi-final.

Khachanov, who impressed at Wimbledon earlier this month to reach the quarter-finals, continued his form into Tokyo after beating Australian James Duckworth and Diego Schwartzman before battling past Ugo Humbert.

Pablo Carreno Busta will fight for a bronze medal against the loser of the semi-final.
