Updated: 

Top seed Roberto Bautista Agut earned the opportunity to go one step further at the Winston-Salem Open after reaching the final on Friday.

Bautista Agut was runner-up at the ATP 250 tournament last year, beaten by Pablo Carreno Busta.

But the Spaniard made it back to the final following his 6-2 6-4 victory over Jan-Lennard Struff.

Bautista Agut broke four times in one hour, 13 minutes to earn a meeting with Bosnian Damir Dzumhur.

Dzumhur dug deep, rallying to beat qualifier Kyle Edmund 1-6 7-5 6-3 in the semis, sealing his first ATP final appearance.
