Matteo Berrettini facing Cristian Garin in Munich Open final

May 5, 2019

MUNICH (AP) — Matteo Berrettini will play Cristian Garin of Chile in the final of the Munich Open after beating fourth-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 6-2 in their rain-postponed semifinal on Sunday.

The 37th-ranked Berrettini converted three of his four break opportunities to beat Bautista Agut in 1 hour and ten minutes, and the Italian has a few hours to recover before facing Garin, ranked No. 47, in the decider.

Garin ousted No. 3 Alexander Zverev — the two-time defending champion — on Friday before beating third-seeded Marco Cecchinato in Saturday’s semifinal.

Garin, winner of his maiden ATP title in Houston last month, has never played Berrettini on the tour.
