Reilly Opelka beats Dan Evans at the Atlanta Open

Alex de Minaur benefited from a retirement against fellow Australian Bernard Tomic as he set up a clash with Reilly Opelka.

De Minaur is seeking a second title after hoisting his first trophy in January in Sydney, after losing there in the 2018 final.

De Minaur's 7-6 (7/4) 6-7 (5/7) 6-3 victory made the 20-year-old the youngest player ever to reach the Atlanta final.

Awaiting him in the final is second-seeded American Taylor Fritz, who overcame Cameron Norrie of Britain 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 in the other semifinal. "I got to play some good tennis, and ended up with the win", De Minaur told the ATP website. "I knew that sooner or later, I'd have a good result again".

De Minaur said it was just a matter of staying patient and maintaining his poise as his good friend Opelka rained down the aces.

He added, "Unfortunately, with that, I have to also let go of all the caps jo maine collect kiye in 7-8 mahino mein". With the film coming to an end, Arjun is finally relieved that he can now take off his cap in public.

After more than two hours of play, De Minaur earned the first break of the match to lead 3-2 in the deciding set. De Minaur got 51 percent of his first serves in play, didn't face a single break point and had five aces.

The 21-year-old Opelka, who earned his first ATP title at NY this year, kept it from becoming a runaway as he saved three break points in the seventh game.

"It's a bit of a lottery out here".

Fritz also needed three sets to get past Norrie in the evening match as the 21-year-old American continued his bid for a second career title after capturing his first at last month's Eastbourne International.

"I tried to make a couple adjustments in the third, I won a lot of important points and was mentally able to turn it around".
