Milos Raonic beat Vasek Pospisil 6-4, 1-6, 7-6 (4) in the semi-finals Saturday.
He’ll now face Rafael Nadal, who beat two-time defending champ Novak Djokovic 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (2) in the other semi.
The match begins at 3pm.
Raonic has never beaten Nadal.
They’ve played 3 times, including earlier this year in Barcelona when Raonic lost 6-4, 6-0.
Raonic is looking to become the first Canadian man to win it since Robert Bedard won it for the third time in 1958.
This is Raonic’s first final in the Master series, a level of A-T-P tournament just below the grand slams.
