World number 20 Alexander Zverev has reached the final of the BMW Open by FWU in Munich. Zverev of Germany made it past Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut in Saturday's semifinal. The 20-year-old edged out the second-seed in a tight two-set battle 7-5 7-5.

Bautista Agut was serving at 5-5 in both sets, but he wasn't able to hold on to his serve and lost the match eventually. Third-seeded Zverev fired nine aces and converted 3-of-6 of his break point chances while saving 3-of-4 of the Spaniard's break point tries. The clash came to an end after an hour and 34 minutes of action.

The head-to-head record between the two still stands on Bautista Agut's side, as he defeated Zverev twice in their three meetings.

Zverev is now just a step away from making it all the way for the second time this season. The promising player went all the way at the Open Sud de France in Montpellier earlier this year. It remains to be seen whether the player ranked at number 20 in the world can win his first Atp Munich title.

Bautista Agut will remain on one ATP singles title earned thus far in the 2017 tennis season. The 29-year-old had a winning run at his first tournament of the season -- ATP Chennai.

An amazing run continues

Qualifier Guido Pella has a final meeting at the BMW Open by FWU with Alexander Zverev. Argentina's Pella prevailed over 2015 ATP Munich runner-up Hyeon Chung in the second semifinal of the day in Munich.

The world number 158 had to create a comeback in order to beat the South Korean tennis player 4-6 7-5 6-4.

Pella hit nine aces and broke the serve of Chung four times during the match. The match lasted two hours and 39 minutes.

26-year-old Pella has taken a 1-0 lead over the world number 78 after taking the first-ever meeting between the two.

The Argentinian tennis player has now reached his first final of this year.

It has all come down to one match

The BMW Open by FWU in Munich is set to have a new champion at the tournament. Either Alexander Zverev or Pella will be winning its first title at ATP Munich on Sunday.

Local player Zverev has captured two ATP singles titles thus far in his career.

On the other hand, Pella has yet to win an ATP title since turning pro in 2007.

Both players have yet to clash off at the ATP level. The two did play in the qualifiers of the Heilbronn Challenger in 2015 -- Zverev took a 2-0 win over Pella back then. It remains to be seen whether the champion will be a local hero or just a great story of this year's edition of the Munich event.
