On the men's side, Daniil Medvedev defeated world No. 1 Novak Djokovic 3-6,6-3,6-3. The 23-year-old Russian continues his astonishing form as he has reached his third final in as many weeks. He leads the ATP for match wins with 43 this season.

David Goffin reached his first ATP Masters 1000 final defeating Richard Gasquet 6-3,6-4. Goffin, the semifinalist here last year was 0-4 in Masters 1000 semifinals coming into today's match. He is now the first player from Belgium to reach an ATP Masters 1000 final.
