Rinderknech won 6-1, 6-3 over Corentin Moutet
in the semifinals of Adelaide 2 on Friday.
The 26-year-old Frenchman rolled into the first final of his career as he moved past his countryman while dropping just 11 points on serve across one hour and 16 minutes. Rinderknech has been steadily rising the rankings over the last year, and his current ranking of No. 58 already marks a career high. He will face home favorite Thanasi Kokkinakis
in the final as both players seek their first title.
