Jannik Sinner and Hubert Hurkacz will meet in the Miami Open final.
Italian sensation Sinner book his spot in his maiden ATP Masters final, after claiming a 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 victory over seventh seed Roberto Bautista Agut.
“It feels unbelievable,” Sinner said in his on-court interview. “It’s always tough to play against Roberto. Two weeks ago we played in Dubai, we had a tough one there. Now, a tough one here. I’m very happy about reaching the final here in Miami.”
In the other semi-final, 26th seed Hubert Hurkacz continued his marvellous form, claiming a second straight top 10 win by defeating Andrey Rublev 6-3, 6-4 in just under 90 minutes.
“It means a lot, especially after winning a title at the beginning of the year, I had a couple of rough matches,” Hurkacz said in his on-court interview.
“So I’m so happy that I came over and I was still trying to improve my game and trying to be a better player. This is really huge for me."
Hurkacz and Sinner will meet for the first time in what is a maiden ATP Masters final for both players.
