Tommy Robredo is back in an ATP World Tour final…
The 32-year-old Spanish tennis player defeated Colombia’s Santiago Giraldo 6-1, 6-4 on Saturday to reach the final of the Shenzhen Open.
Robredo had 10 aces and converted four of his seven break points to beat Giraldo in 70 minutes.
The victory saw Robredo level his head-to-head series with Giraldo at 2-2. Additionally, he has a 35-20 record on the season and will contest his second final this year, having finished runner-up on clay at the Croatia Open in July after losing to Pablo Cuevas in the final.
He’ll next face Andy Murray in Sunday’s final as he looks to level their head-to-head record. Murray has a 3-2 record over Robredo and has won their past three meetings.
Robredo will be contesting his 21st ATP World Tour final. He has a 12-8 finals record.
He’s looking to win his first title since victory in Umag in July 2013 and his first hard-court title since triumphing in Metz seven years ago.
Robredo also inched ever closer to his 500th tour-level win (493-310 record).
