Sibiu, Romania

Thanasi Kokkinakis has advanced to the final at an ATP Challenger in Sibiu.

The 25-year-old Australian lost only four points on serve during a dominant 6-2 6-1 semifinal win against Switzerland’s Marc-Andrea Huesler at the clay-court tournament.

The 57-minute victory sets up a final showdown with top-seeded Italian Stefano Travaglia. It will be Kokkinakis’ first career meeting with the world No.97.

This is world No.194 Kokkinakis’ second ATP Challenger final appearance this season, having also won a clay-court event in Italy in May.

The former world No.69 has won 11 of his past 14 matches and is yet to drop a set this week.
