De Minaur beat American Taylor Fritz 4-3 (10-8), 4-1, 4-2 on Thursday with Tsitsipas racing past Poland's Hubert Hurkacz 4-1, 4-3 (7-2), 4-1.

Top-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece will face Australian teenager Alex de Minaur in the championship match of the Next Gen Finals on Saturday.

The Spaniard saved a break point in the very first game of the match with a service victor and he created two break points with a forehand cross court victor in game four that could have moved him ahead.

Just like de Minaur, Tsitsipas, the top seed and the best-ranked player in the draw, will also be arriving in the finals undefeated. I was aiming to win that match.

De Minaur saved two match points in the last game of the fourth and, ultimately, final set but it was Tsitsipas who once again triumphed in the tiebreak to secure a win that will leave a sweet taste after a remarkable season as he was crowned the best of his contemporaries.

Following Denis Shapovalov's withdrawal, the pair were the top-ranked players at the experimental event in Milan, and their supremacy was evident as they both went unbeaten through the event to reach the final.

"I think it would be a fantastic year-end", said Tsitsipas of winning in Milan.

Tsitsipas made no mistake on his third, though, after the Australian sent a forehand long.

"I never expected nearly anything that happened this year", said the player from Sydney.

"All credit to Stefanos".

De Minaur was in uncharted territory, having lost just one set throughout round-robin play, but he quickly regrouped.

He added: "And I'm very happy it's over. But really proud with myself, and I really owe it all to the team of people I've put around me".

It is created to increase the number of pivotal moments in a match, while playing best-of-five sets does not alter the number of games required to win a match (12) from the traditional three-set scoring format.
