Beijing - Juan Martin del Potro has moved straight into Sunday's final of the China Open after Italy's Fabio Fognini pulled out of their semi-final.

Organisers in Beijing confirmed that Fognini, who was chasing a fourth title of the season, was out of the tournament injured.

The Argentine top seed Del Potro will face either Britain's fifth seed Kyle Edmund or unseeded Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia in the final.
