Denis Shapovalov makes his way to his 2nd final of the season as he defeats compatriot Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-4, 7-5 in 1 hour and 58 minutes. Denis has dropped just 1 set this week in Sweden and will look to finish the season on a high by winning his 2nd ATP title as he reaches the finals at Stockholm for 2nd consecutive year having won in 2019 and is just 2-sets away from a successful title defense.

Tommy Paul reaches his first-ever career final on the Tour as he also takes down his compatriot in the semi-finals. Up against Frances Tiafoe, Paul won the match 5-7, 7-6(5), 6-4 in 2 hours and 30 minutes. Having won the first two rounds in straight-sets Paul won his quarter-final and semi-final tie in 3-sets and will be highly motivated to win his maiden ATP title this week.

Denis will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 54-35 and is 4-2 on the surface this season while having a season record of 30-22 across all surfaces. Tommy will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 40-25 and is 11-4 on the surface this season and has a 32-23 record for the season across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers, their recent form and performances in the past few weeks, Denis Shapovalov looks the favourite for the tie but might need to overcome a strong challenge from Paul who has looked in good shape this week and is hunting his maiden ATP title.

Prediction: Denis Shapovalov to win in 3-sets
