Wu edged out his American opponent 6-7 (3/7), 7-5, 6-4. He may play for the title on Sunday against another American, John Isner (ATP 39), the fifth seed. The towering storage cannon defeated his compatriot JJ Wolf (ATP 43) in the first semi-final 3-6, 7-5 and 7-6 (7/4).

23-year-old Wu and 37-year-old Isner have never played against each other before. It will therefore be his first ATP final for the Chinese, the American is completing his 32nd final.

Isner is certainly not a cat to handle without gloves. The American service gun added another tennis record to its impressive record list on Friday. This time by becoming the first player ever to cross the 500 tiebreak mark. He is looking for his seventeenth title in Dallas. The winner succeeds the American Reilly Opelka on the honor roll in Dallas.
