·1 min read

STUTTGART, Germany — Montreal's Felix Auger-Aliassime is once again through to the finals at the Stuttgart Open.

The 20-year-old Canadian downed American Sam Querrey 6-4, 7-5 Saturday to secure his spot in the title match at the ATP 250 grass-court event.

He's set to face Marin Cilic on Sunday. The Croatian clinched his spot when Jurij Rodionov retired due to injury with Cilic up 6-3, 1-0.

Auger-Aliassime, seeded third in the tournament, did not face a break point and hit seven aces against Querrey. The Canadian has not lost a set in Stuttgart this week.

It will be Auger-Aliassime's eighth career final and second straight appearance in the tournament's title match. He lost to Matteo Berrettini in 2019.

Cilic has won both of his prior meetings with Auger-Aliassime.
