ATP News: ATP roundup: Felix Auger-Aliassime pulls upset, makes Basel final


Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, the No. 6 seed, earned a spot in the Swiss Indoors Basel final, upsetting No. 1 seed Holger Rune of Denmark 6-3, 6-2 in the semifinals Saturday.

Auger-Aliassime, who broke Rune’s serve four times in the 83-minute match, advanced to his first final since winning the event last year.

In the final, Auger-Aliassime will face No. 4 seed Hubert Hurkacz of Poland, who defeated unseeded Ugo Humbert of France 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (5) in the other semifinal.

Hurkacz had a chance to serve out the match leading 5-3 in the third set, but Humbert rallied. Hurkacz then couldn’t convert two match points on Humbert’s serve and needed three more match points in the tiebreaker to clinch the win.

Erste Bank Open

The top two seeds, Daniil Medvedev of Russia and Jannik Sinner of Italy, will meet in the final after straight-set victories in the semifinals.

Medvedev reached the final for the second straight year, defeating fourth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece 6-4, 7-6 (6). Medvedev, who had just 10 unforced errors, saved all three break points as he hopes to repeat as the tournament champion.

With a 7-5, 7-6 (5) win over No. 3 seed Andrey Rublev of Russia, Sinner became the first Italian man in the Open era (since 1968) with 55 wins in a season.

Sinner, who compiled 10 aces among his 26 winners, displayed his power in the tiebreaker after failing to serve out the match at 5-4.
