Alejandro Davidovich Fokina has reached his first final on the ATP Challenger Tour, facing Guido Androezzi of Argentina in Sunday’s title match of the €127,000 Pekao Szczecin Open.

Davidovich Fokina beat fellow teenager Rudolf Molleker in a topsy-turvy semi-finals match on Saturday afternoon. The 19-year-old Spaniard capitalized on five of his 10 break point chances to secure a 6-1, 2-6, 6-2 victory in one hour and 20 minutes.

Earlier in the day, Andreozzi emerged victorious from the all-Argentine encounter with qualifier Facundo Arguello, winning 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-4. The No. 4 seed from Buenos Aires won two points more than his opponent to prevail after two hours and 42 minutes.

Davidovich Fokina and Andreozzi will meet for the first time.
