Third-seed Nagal faced a challenging match as unseeded Ritschard provided strong resistance, especially in the second and third sets.

Nagal started dominantly, securing several breaks to win the first set 6-1. Although he managed to break Ritschard’s serve in the second set, Ritschard broke back and forced a tiebreak, ultimately winning it 7-6 (7-5).

In Heilbronner, Nagal triumphed over Nikoloz Basilashvili from Georgia, Javier Barranco Cosano from Spain, Ivan Gakhov from Russia, and Luca Van Assche from France to reach the final.
