Canada's Auger-Aliassime beats Carreno Busta to reach Rotterdam final

Gael Monfils won his second title in the space of seven days on Sunday as he swatted aside Canadian teenager Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-2 6-4 in a lopsided Rotterdam Open final to retain the trophy.

Auger-Aliassime repelled four match points in the eighth game to pull one break back and prolong the action before Monfils landed a service victor at 5-4 for a hold at 15 and back-to-back titles during an indoor swing.

"The week has been good, encouraging", said Auger-Aliassime. "I was serving the best I've ever served in that first set and then played a solid tiebreak".

French third seed and defending champion Gael Monfils is in action against Briton Dan Evans, while Serbia's Filip Krajinović takes on world No. 7 Andrey Rublev of Russian Federation later on Friday in the other quarter-finals. And the 19-year-old wouldn't relinquish his advantage as he wrapped up the first set 7-6 (2).

Auger-Aliassime merely delayed the setback until his next service game, though, Monfils coming out on top for a 3-2 lead as the pair did battle at the net. "It was tough for me, losing my fourth career final, but I had an awesome week", said the Canadian. "Obviously you know the end is coming if you keep serving well and keep holding your serve … things got a bit hard, saving that break point after making some tight mistakes".

"Bravo Gael, I'm happy for you". Auger-Aliassime won the first four points, including two mini-breaks, to put himself into pole position. He made it to three finals a year ago in his first full season on tour.
