After a disappointing first round exit at the French Open Australia’s Alex de Minaur has bounced back in Antwerp to reach the final of the European Open where he will face France’s Ugo Humbert.
de Minaur despatched Grigor Dimitrov 7-6(4), 6-7(3), 6-4 in two hours and 48 minutes to reach his first tour level final since the 2019 Swiss Indoors a year ago. On that occasion he lost 6-2, 6-2 to Roger Federer.
World no. 29 de Minaur is aiming for a fourth ATP title after collecting three trophies in 2019 including his home tournament in Sydney.
France’s world no. 38 Umbert has one title to his name after claiming the Auckland title at the start of the year.
The final is the first head-to-head meeting for this pair.
