Kyle Edmund and Andreas Seppi face in the New York Open final

British Kyle Edmund and italian Andreas Seppi they will meet for the second time in a month when they dispute the final of the New York Open on Sunday.

Edmund advanced by beating Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic in 54th place 6-4 and 6-1 in a semi-final on Saturday afternoon at the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island.

Seppi prevailed in the night cup when he beat Jason Jung of Taiwan in 131st place 6-3 and 6-2.

Edmund and Seppi have clashed five times, most recently in Auckland in January, when the British won in straight sets to improve his record against the Italian to 4-1.

Edmund's only career title came in Antwerp in 2018, while Seppi, 35, has three career titles, but none since 2012.

It's great to be back in a final, playing the games you want to play, Edmund said after doing a quick job of Kecmanovic, who ranks 62nd in a match that lasted just an hour.

Obviously I want to go to the end, but I'm enjoying myself tennis . I have continued to improve and learn with each game.

In the other semi, Seppi finally exhausted a stubborn Jung, who was particularly vulnerable in the second service.

Seppi, who ranks 98th, converted five of his 13 break opportunities for a finally comfortable victory.
