Jarry & Londero into Swedish Open final, Balazs stuns Djere in Umag
The Swedish Open final will see Nicolas Jarry face Juan Ignacio Londero while Attila Balazs will face Dusan Lajovic at the Croatia Open.
Nicolas Jarry is a win away from his first career ATP singles title after breezing to victory over Federico Delbonis at the Swedish Open.
The Chilean has yet to drop a set on the clay in Bastad, keeping up his flawless record with a 6-3 6-2 defeat of Delbonis on Saturday.
After seeing off an Argentinian in the semi-final, he will face another in the showpiece, with Juan Ignacio Londero overcoming 2016 champion Albert Ramos Vinolas 6-3 6-4 to progress to the final.
“I am really looking forward to [the final],” said Jarry. “Juan Ignacio is a friend and he is playing really good this year. He already won his first ATP [Tour title] and I am looking for mine. It is going to be a tight match. I have to fight a lot.
“He is very fast. He is a grinder, so I have to play very aggressive and try to serve well. The key will be the returning games. I have to keep playing them well.”
At the Croatia Open, qualifier Attila Balazs will play in his first ATP final after stunning third seed Laslo Djere, setting up a clash with Dusan Lajovic.
Balazs, who retired from tennis five years ago before having a change of heart, prevailed 6-2 6-4 against world number 32 Djere. Lajovic won the first set 7-5 against another qualifier, Salvatore Caruso, who retired with a leg injury ahead of the second set in Umag.
