The top two seeds in Antwerp have reached the singles final. Tomorrow, it will be Jannik Sinner taking on Diego Schwartzman for the indoor title.

Sinner advanced to his sixth career ATP final with an overwhelming 6-2, 6-2 win over Lloyd Harris.

“I am very happy to be in the final,” Sinner told the crowd. “He is having an incredible season, so best of luck for him to finish in the best possible way. Thanks to the crowd for coming out today, it was a great atmosphere here. I just love playing here and love playing indoors, so hopefully I can play a great match again tomorrow.”

The 20-year-old sinner is 4-1 in finals with three titles already this year.

For a fifth career title, he’ll meet Schwartzman who also dropped just four games in a 6-4, 6-0 victory over American qualifier Jenson Brooksby. After a close start, the Argentine took over winning the last nine games of the match.

“It is always tough when you play an opponent you have never played before,” Schwartzman said. “In the first game, you try and figure out how he is going to play and how I am going to play and how you feel the ball.

“I was just trying to put every ball in and I think the first set helped me because in the second set he was unable to do what he did in the first set. I kept my rhythm in the second set, which I think was the difference. I feel very comfortable here.”

Schwartzman will seek his 5th career title in his 12th final. Neither player has dropped a set. This is their first meeting.
