Pablo Carreño and Hubert Hurkacz will play the Metz tournament this Sunday after beating Frenchman Gael Monfils and German Peter Gojowczyk, respectively.
The Spanish, a bronze medalist at the Tokyo Olympics, recovered from his bad start in the first set (0-3) and a triple set point in the second (3-6 in the tiebreak) to defeat the number 20 of the world classification and seed number 3 by 7-5 and 7-6 (8).
His rival for the title will be the Polish Hubert Hurkacz, first seed, who previously beat the German Peter Gojowczyk, winner of the tournament in 2017, by 6-4 and 7-6 (4) after one hour and 37 game minutes.
Hurkacz will look to Pablo Carreño for his third title of the year after those achieved in the Masters 1,000 in Miami and in Delray Beach.
The definition has a plus for the ATP Finals: Carreño has already risen to 13th place but the title would leave him 12th and waiting. The Pole, meanwhile, established himself in ninth position and if he won on Sunday he would rise to eighth place, which today belongs to Casper Ruud.
The final of this tournament can be seen on the ESPN screen on Star +.
