After a week full of high-octane action, the victors are going to be crowned on Day 9 of the 2022 Monte-Carlo Masters.
Defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas will take on first-time finalist Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the singles final. The Greek arrived in Monaco on the heels of a couple of underwhelming performances. But he has found his groove once again and is on the cusp of winning back-to-back titles in Monte Carlo.
Tsitsipas' path to the final was relatively easy. He started off with a commanding 6-3, 6-0 win over Fabio Fognini, followed by another straight-sets win over Laslo Djere. He was tested in the quarterfinals by Diego Schwartzman, but prevailed 6-2, 6-7 (3), 6-4.
Tsitsipas played a pretty great match to defeat World No. 3 Alexander Zverev 6-4, 6-2 in the semifinals.
For Davidovich Fokina, this has been a memorable tournament. He started off with a straight-sets win over Marcos Giron in the first round. He then secured the biggest win of his career by defeating World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the second round. The Spaniard needed three sets to overcome the 20-time Major champion.
Davidovich Fokina picked up an easy 6-4, 6-1 win over David Goffin in the third round. He was pushed to the limits in the quarterfinals and semifinals by Taylor Fritz and Grigor Dimitrov respectively. But the 22-year-old prevailed in three sets on both occasions to reach the final.
In the doubles final, the top-seeded duo of Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury will be competing for their first title of the year. They'll take on either the Colombian pairing of Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah, or the eighth-seeded team of Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer.
