Denis Shapovalov sets up Korea Open final against Yoshihito Nishioka

Canada's Denis Shapovalov will face Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka in the final of the Korea Open in Seoul after he eased to a straight-sets victory over United States' Jenson Brooksby on Saturday.

Shapovalov claimed a 7-5, 6-4 win over Brooksby to reach his first ATP Tour final this year.

The fourth-seeded Canadian has yet to lose a set this week in Korea and will be seeking second career ATP Tour title on Sunday.

He will face Nishioka, who continued his surprise run after a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 victory over American Aleksandar Kovacevic.
