Hamburg specialist Leonardo Mayer on course to defend German Open title
Defending champion Leonardo Mayer beat qualifier Jozef Kovalik 6-7 6-4 7-6 to reach the final of the German Open.
The Argentinian, looking to reach his third Hamburg final in five years, had to save a match point against the 113-ranked Slovakian, but still managed to come out on top in what was a near-three hour marathon.
Interestingly, Mayer only has two ATP Tour titles to his name, with both won in Hamburg.
He’ll now face Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili, who overcame big-hitting Chilean Nicolas Jarry 7-5 0-6 6-1 in the other semi-final.
