Rotterdam - Gael Monfils returned to the final at the Rotterdam Open on Saturday as he overhauled Daniil Medvedev 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Saturday.

The French showman left it late but gave the Ahoy Arena crowd a thrill as he broke in the penultimate game of the third set and served out the win a game later.

Victory sent the 32-year-old into the final here for the second time after reaching the title match in his last Rotterdam appearance in 2016.

Monfils will take on either top seed Kei Nishikori or former champion Stan Wawrinka in Sunday's final.
