Finals day set for Apis Canberra International

The men’s and women’s singles finals are set to take place at the Apis Canberra International on Sunday. Destanee Aiava (VIC) will take on Olivia Rogowska (VIC) in the women’s final, while Matthew Ebden (WA) will battle Japan’s Taro Daniel  in the men’s final.

World number 169, Aiava will be looking to secure her third pro tour title of the year after winning events in Perth and Mornington in early 2017.

Aiava will face tough competition from Rogowska who has won 18 of her last 20 matches on the Pro Tour, including titles in Penrith and Cairns and a semifinal appearance in Brisbane.  Rogowska has plenty of finals experience with 14 Pro tour titles under her belt.

 The men’s final is sure to be a quality affair with Ebden and Daniel holding 11 ATP Challenger titles between them and both being former top 100 players.

After missing most of 2016 with injury, Ebden has bounced back this year highlighted by making his maiden ATP final in Newport after coming through qualifying.

In 2017, Daniel won the ATP Challenger title in Buenos Aires and was a finalist at Maui, Lisbon, and Ningbo.  At this year’s US Open, Daniel won his opening round and then took the first set off world number 1 Rafael Nadal before falling in four sets
