Monfils will face Stepanek in the Legg Mason final.

Picture

Top seed Gael Monfils was made to wait and then made to fight to reach the final of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington. A lengthy rain delay saw his semi-final against John Isner continue into the early hours as the powerful-serving American put up a tough fight. Isner fired in 19 aces but Monfils eventually prevailed 6-4 3-6 7-6 (8/6).

The Frenchman must now hope the late night does not cost him in the final, where he will face the unseeded Radek Stepanek, who completed a 6-3 6-3 victory over Donald Young in far more routine fashion.
