TODAY'S Aegon Ilkley Trophy men's singes final will feature a qualifier for the first time.

Australian left-hander Alex Bolt, who also qualified for the tournament in 2015, will face fellow non seed in Hungary's Marton Fucsovics in the $150,000 ATP Challenger.

Bolt, 24, will be playing his eighth match in the event, while Fucsovics, who is a year older, has followed through on his defeat of top seed Victor Estrella Burgos (Dominican Republic) in the first round.

Both finalists had to play two matches yesterday in order to catch up from Thursday's rain.

Bolt defeated Frenchman Quentin Halys 6-4, 6-2 on Court One before beating big-serving fellow Australian Sam Groth 6-4, 6-4.

Fucsovics beat Great Britain's Jay Clarke 6-3, 6-4 and then won a semi-final 7-5, 7-6 (7-3) over third seed Evgeny Donskoy (Russia) that was full of delightful rallies.

The other two quarter-finals both resulted in defeats for the star spangled banner, with Donskoy beating the hard-hitting Taylor Fritz 7-6 (7-3), 6-4, while Groth went past Bjorn Fratangelo 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 in a contest that had stood at 2-2 in the second set overnight.

The final in the $100,000 ITF Women's Futures tournament will be between Belgium's Alison van Uytvanck and Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova.

Like the men, the women had to play two rounds yesterday, with van Uytvanck progressing 6-7 (5-7), 6-4, 3-0 retired against the Mark Petchey-coached Maria Sakkari (Greece), who had right shoulder problems, and 6-4, 6-2 against New Zealand's Marina Erakovic.

Rybarikova saw off the last two remaining seeds in fifth favourite Madison Brengle (United States) 6-7 (2-7), 6-1, 6-2 and sixth favourite Andrea Petkovic (Germany) 6-3, 6-3.

The men's doubles winners Leander Paes (India) and Adil Shamasdin (Canada) recovered from the loss of the opening set to defeat Britain's Brydan Klein and Joe Salisbury 2-6, 6-2, 10-8, while Russians Anna Blinkova and Alla Kudryavtseva were untroubled in winning the women's doubles final 6-1, 6-4 against Paula Kania (Poland) and Maryna Zanevska (Belguim).

 The men's singles final will start at 11am and the women's singles final at 2pm.
