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.

Up against Frances Tiafoe, Paul won the match 5-7, 7-6(5), 6-4 in 2 hours and 30 minutes.
