Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili defeated fifth-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut 7-6 (5), 6-2) on Saturday to win the Qatar ExxonMobil Open championship in Doha, Qatar.

Basilashvili, 29, battled through windy conditions and did not face a break point in the 90-minute match.

Basilashvili, who eliminated No. 2 seed Roger Federer of Switzerland in the second round, has won his last four ATP Tour finals (2018 German Open, 2018 China Open and 2019 Hamburg European Open).

Top-seeded Daniil Medvedev of Russia will take on unseeded Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert in Sunday's final in Marseille, France.

They split their previous two head-to-head meetings, with Herbert winning the most recent match in a five-setter at the 2019 French Open.

Medvedev was leading 6-4, 3-0 (40-15) when Australia's Matthew Ebden retired due to injury.

In the other semifinal, Herbert defeated fourth-seeded countryman Ugo Humbert 6-3, 6-2 in one hour, six minutes. Herbert struck nine asses and never faced a break point.
