Frances Tiafoe reaches the final in Estoril

Joao Sousa and Frances Tiafoe booked their spot in the final after upsetting recent Barcelona finalist Stefano Tsitsipas and defending champion Pablo Carreno Busta.

Sousa defeats Tsitsipas 6-4 1-6 7-6

A rollercoaster of a match for Joao Sousa, who is now one win from becoming the first Portuguese player to win the tournament. A break of serve was enough to capture the first set, but the young Greek rallied back to level the match at one set all. The world number 68 who had never won a match in his 3 previous visits here prevailed in the tie-break 7-4.

Kings Rafa reigns in Barcelona for the 11th time: he made a quick work of Stefano Tsitsipas, defeating the Greek sensation 6-2 6-1. A perfect week for Rafa who did not lose a set en route to his 20th ATP 500 title.
