Felix Auger-Aliassime: faces Gael Monfils in Rotterdam final

Canadian rising star Felix Auger-Aliassime closed to within one match of ending his wait for a maiden ATP title by beating Pablo Carreno Busta on Saturday to reach the final of the ABN Amro World Tournament in Rotterdam.

The 19-year-old booked a place in his fourth Tour final with a 7-6 (7/2), 6-4 win over Spain’s Carreno Busta.

World number 21 Auger-Aliassime will face French third seed Gael Monfils on Sunday.

Monfil defeated Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic 6-4 7-6.

Auger-Aliassime lost all three of his previous ATP finals last year in Rio de Janeiro, Lyon and Stuttgart, while he was also a member of the Canadian side which lost to Spain in the Davis Cup final.
