New Delhi: Sanam Singh is one win away from clinching his second ITF Futures singles title of the season as he has reached the final of the Toronto event after a tough victory over fifth seed Michael Shabaz.

The second seed Indian beat the American 6-3 3-6 7-5 in the semifinals.

Sanam now faces top seeded Canadian Peter Polansky, who advanced to the summit clash after getting a walkover from Vijayant Malik.

Malik and Sanam had also conceded the doubles semifinal due to the former`s unspecified injury.

If Sanam wins the singles final, it will be his second title, having triumphed at an event in America in March.
