AUSTRALIA’S Alex de Minaur survived four match points to beat fellow young gun Andrey Rublev and reach his first ATP Tour 500-level final in Washington DC.

The 19-year-old fought back from a set down against Russian 16th seed Rublev and saved four match points to prevail 5-7 7-6 (8-6) 6-4 in a high-quality Citi Open semi-final. His reward is a clash with defending champion and world No. 3 Alexander Zverev in Sunday’s final.

It will be de Minaur’s second appearance in an ATP Tour final, having reached the decider at the lower-tier Sydney tournament in January.

“I’m incredibly proud of myself. I dug deep,” De Minaur said. “I just couldn’t see myself going any further. But I kept pushing myself, kept trying every single point and managed to turn that around.

“That’s probably the best win of my career.”

His latest win continues a dramatic rise for de Minaur in 2018.

He started the year ranked No. 208 but he is set to crack the top 50 for the first time when rankings are updated on Monday and he will go to No. 33 if he beats Zverev.
