Nicolas Jarry is one win away from his second ATP Tour title of the year…
The 27-year-old Chilean professional tennis player defeated third-seeded Alexander Zverev 7-6 (3), 6-3 at the Geneva Open on Friday in a rematch of their 2019 final of the Swiss tournament.
Jarry sealed the win with a delicate, low backhand volley at the net, one day after ousting top-seeded Casper Ruud, the two-time defending champion.
Zverev and Ruud combined to win the past three editions of the French Open warmup event and neither had lost at the lakeside park venue until running into the tall 54th-ranked Chilean.
Jarry, who chasing his second title this year after also winning on clay at his hometown Santiago event in March, will face Grigor Dimitrov, who advanced to his first final on the ATP Tour in more than five years by beating Taylor Fritz 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (2).
