Ruben is into the final of the Rising Stars Tennis Tour-tournament in Westende (Future; $ 10 000). Together with Yannick Mertens (ATP D-500) he also captured the doubles title.
Ruben (ATP-177), the first seed in Westende, secured his spot in the finals by beating Michael Geerts (ATP-465), the fourth seed, on the score of 6-3 and 7-5. In the final Ruben will face second seed Mertens (ATP-224).
Ruben knows Mertens well as they earlier won the doubles title together. As the first seeds, they were found to be too strong in the final against the third seeds, the Americans Hunter (ATP D-1 103) and James Johnson (ATP D-1 103). The Belgium duo secured the win with two times 6-1. This win marks Ruben's twentieth doubles title.
