Defending champion Juan Martin del Potro reached the finals of the 2017 Intrum Stockholm Open after beating eighth seed Fernando Verdasco, 7(4), 6-4, 7-6(1), in Saturday’s semifinal. Del Potro made it to his first final this season where he will go for his 20th career title against top seed Grigor Dimitrov. The 29-year-old del Potro has made a late-season comeback, putting himself in a position to qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals. He is currently 15th in the ATP Race To London rankings with 2,035 points. If he beats Dimitrov, del Potro will be just 480 points behind No. 9 Pablo Carreno Busta, who currently holds the last qualifying spot with No. 7 Stan Wawrinka out for the season due to injury.

However, it will not be an easy match for del Potro, as he will face the in-form Dimitrov, who disposed of sixth seed Fabio Fognini in straight sets in the other semifinal pairing. With his victory over Fognini, Dimitrov solidified his bid for a spot in the Nitto ATP Finals as he climbed to No. 5 in the ATP Race To London rankings. Del Potro leads Dimitrov, 5-2, in their head-to-head showdown, but the latter won their last two clashes in Beijing and Cincinnati this year. Dimitrov will go for his career-best fourth trophy of the season after winning in Brisbane, Sofia and Cincinnati.
