After a week of scintillating action at the Karnataka State Lawn Tennis Association courts, the curtain comes down on the Bengaluru Open 2020 on Sunday, but not before the men's singles final is played out at the Garden City.
Both finalists have dropped just a single set en route to the title clash but while Duckworth followed the script, Bonzi surprised many by punching well above his weight to reach the final.
Bonzi who is a former French Open boys doubles titleholder will be hoping to extend his dream run at Bengaluru against a more fancied competitor who reached the semifinals of the Maharashtra Open 2020 after making a first-round exit at the Australian Open 2020.
Duckworth, who was seeded sixth at Pune, lost to eighth seed Egor Gerasimov in the semifinals but has looked to be in good touch at Bengaluru and should be able to stave off the challenge from Bonzi on Sunday evening.
Bonzi and Duckworth have no head-to-head record and will be facing each other for the first time in the US$ 162,500 Bengaluru Open final.
