Defending champion Gaël Monfils is on a roll as he defeated Serbia's Filip Krajinović for the second time in two weeks in another ATP Tour indoor tournament semi-finals to reach the finals at the Rotterdam Open 2020. Enjoying an eight-match winning streak currently, the Frenchman has been unstoppable at the Ahoy Rotterdam and he took down Krajinović in straight sets, 6-4, 7-6.
The World No. 9 player is in sharp form and displayed his fitness throughout the match against the Serbian. He had defeated the same opponent in the semi-finals of the Open Sud de France last week before going on to claim the title. Coming into Rotterdam as the defending champion, Monfils has retained his form and shone in every match at the ATP 500 event.
The third-seeded Frenchman will now have to face the young Canadian, Felix Auger-Aliassime in the finals of Rotterdam. The 19-year-old has been playing extremely well for his age and defeated Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta in straight sets, 7-6, 6-4.
Neither Monfils nor Auger-Aliassime have met each other on the court previously which would make it an interesting clash. However, Monfils has always excelled at Rotterdam and he will go into the match as a favourite and with the urge to defend his title. It remains to be seen if the young Canadian can upset this plan of the Frenchman.
