Second seed Cameron Norrie reached the final of the Auckland Open by defeating American Jenson Brooksby 6-3, 6-4 at the ASB Tennis Centre on Friday.
In the final, Norrie, ranked No 12, will face Frenchman Richard Gasquet, who received a walkover into the final when his opponent Constant Lestienne withdrew prior to their semi-final.
