ATP roundup: Alejandro Tabilo in third final of season in Mallorca

tabilo

No. 4 seed Alejandro Tabilo of Chile rallied past French sixth seed Gael Monfils 2-6, 6-2, 7-6 (3) in the semifinals of the Mallorca Championships on Friday in Spain.

Tabilo reached his third final of the season, one on each surface — hard court, clay and grass. After he absorbed Monfils’ 12 aces and won 40 of 49 first-serve points (81.6 percent), Tabilo seeks his second career title after winning the season opener in Auckland, New Zealand.

His opponent in the final will be Austria’s Sebastian Ofner, a 6-4, 7-5 winner over qualifier Paul Jubb of Great Britain. Jubb had upset top-seeded Ben Shelton in the quarterfinals.

Rothesay International

No. 1 seed Taylor Fritz is one win away from his third title at the Rothesay International after eliminating Australian lucky loser Aleksandar Vukic 7-6 (5), 7-6 (4) in Eastbourne, England.

Fritz, who won this event in 2019 and 2022, smashed 15 aces with only one double fault on Friday. Both tiebreakers were close, as Vukic tied it 5-5 in the first set and drew within 5-4 in the second before Fritz pulled away both times.

Fritz will square off with another Australian, qualifier Max Purcell, in the final. Purcell defeated British wild card Billy Harris 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. Harris had a 37-21 advantage in winners but also committed triple the number of unforced errors as Purcell (27 to 9).
