Lu Yen-hsun advances to final of 2017 Santaizi ATP Challenger

Taipei, April 22 (CNA) Taiwan's top tennis player Lu Yen-hsun (盧彦勳) advanced to the final of 2017 Santaizi ATP Challenger after defeating Vasek Pospisil from Canada in the semifinals of the tournament Saturday in Taipei, recording his first win over the Canadian in four matches.

Cheered on by a supportive home crowd, Lu beat Pospisil 6-4, 6-4 to clinch a berth in the finals of the US$125,000 tournament.

Lu had lost all three of his previous matches against Pospisil, most recently at this year's Indian Wells Masters (6-7 (6), 6-4, 6-3) and twice in 2015.

Lu is to take on Tatsuma Ito from Japan in the final Sunday.
