Alex de Minaur and Jannik Sinner progress to the final of the National Bank Open.


TORONTO — In the semifinals of the National Bank Open, Alex de Minaur from Australia secured a commanding victory against Spain’s Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, prevailing with a scoreline of 6-1, 6-3.

“I made a conscious decision to approach each point with unwavering competitiveness,” remarked de Minaur. “I focused on maintaining a positive mindset and refraining from becoming disheartened, regardless of how the match unfolded. This approach allowed me to stay mentally resilient, which I believe played a pivotal role in my triumph today.”

De Minaur is now set to square off against the seventh-seeded Jannik Sinner of Italy in the final. Sinner secured his place in the championship match by triumphing over the twelfth-seeded Tommy Paul from the United States, with a score of 6-4, 6-4, in the night semifinal.

“I’m content with my ability to adapt to various on-court scenarios,” expressed Sinner. “He put up a great performance. He’s a genuinely pleasant individual. I’m delighted to once again reach the final and I aspire to showcase some exceptional tennis tomorrow.”

During the previous day’s play, de Minaur caused an upset by defeating the second-seeded Daniil Medvedev. De Minaur had previously clinched his seventh ATP Tour title in March at Acapulco, where he emerged victorious against Paul in the final.

Similarly, Sinner boasts an impressive record with seven tour titles to his name, notably securing his most recent victory in February at Montpellier.
