A week filled with tennis is at an end which means we have a final on our hands and it's an all-Italian clash between Travaglia and Sinner. Both players played well all week long and they found themselves deservedly in the finals. Travaglia will have a very hard task at hand against his countrymen who has been exceptional all week long. He will have his chances as the young Italian played some very physically challenging and long matches leading up to the finals.

Sinner is the overwhelming favourite but his fitness will be an issue heading into this one.

They never played an official match so this will be their first match and it's going to be played at 04:00 on Sunday CET.

The programme will start much later than usual at 04:30 and it will be Monteiro vs Travaglia. Both players defeated strong opposition en route to the semifinals. They never played before so there should be excitement in the match. The 2nd semifinal will feature better-known players in Sinner and Khachanov. The young Italian is continuing a steady rise this year but Khachanov is the toughest player he is yet to face.
