Shapovalov was outclassed 6-2 6-4 by former US Open victor Juan Martin del Potro in Wednesday's Classic second round, and will now head to Melbourne.

BC-TEN-ASB Classic, 220 Del Potro, Bautista Agut to meet in ASB Classic finalFormer champions Juan Martin del Potro and Roberto Bautista Agut will meet Saturday in the final of the ATP Tour's ASB Classic after winning in contrasting semifinals.

Del Potro clearly overpowered the 18-year-old firing eight aces.

Del Potro will return to the world's top 10 for the first time since August 2014 next week and took a step closer to repeating his 2009 win in this tournament with a 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 win against Karen Khachanov.

"I tried to play consistent and aggressive because, with Chung, he plays with power, and it's never easy", Ferrer said afterwards on court.

Bautista Agut cruised into Friday's semi-finals with a 7-6 (7-1) 6-2 win over Czech Jiri Vesely, while Haase trumped giant-killing German Peter Gojowczyk. Ferrer had his chances in the second set but he wasted 5 break points in games 4 and 8, unable to grab the lead and send the match into a decider.

The Argentine world number 12 now goes into a final against 2016 Auckland champion Bautista Agut, who came from behind in an epic a battle against Dutchman Robin Haase featuring three tie-breaks.

Spain's Ferrer, a four-time Auckland champion, disposed of the young Korean 6-3, 6-2 in their quarter final to set up a showdown with Juan Martin del Potro in the final four.

"It was tough at the beginning, to have rhythm with the ball".

Having seen the 21-year-old Chung chase down everything Isner fired across the net in the second round, Ferrer was in no mood for long rallies and his plan to look for early winners paid off as he wrapped up the match in 74 minutes.
