In Moscow, Karatsev and Cilic will seek their second title of the year

The names are already defined. Aslan Karatsev (22nd) and Marin Cilic (41st) will play the ATP 250 Moscow final And whoever wins will reach their second title so far this season.

The Russian comes from beating his compatriot Karen Khachanov (31st) by 7-6 (7) and 6-1, in a match in which during the first set they failed to take advantage from the opportunities of break, but that already in the second set the difference of Karatsev, fundamentally from the service, was notorious.

For its part, the Croatian reached the final after beating Ricardas Berankis (108th) in straight sets 6-3 and 6-4. Cilic only gave one set during the contest, while Karatsev won all the matches in straight sets (he played one less game for being the second seeded).

In this way, Moscow once again you will have the opportunity to have a national champion: in 2018 it was achieved by Khachanov and in 2019 by Andrey Rublev. It should be remembered that in 2020 the contest was not played.

If Cilic wins, he will add his title No. 20 (the third in Moscow, the previous two were in 2014 and 2015). While Karatsev will seek the second consecration in his career.

Only once did they face each other and it was this year at the Cincinnati Masters 1000. The triumph was in the hands of the experienced 33-year-old tennis player, who took the victory 7-5, 6-3.
