Ireland's James McGee failed in his bid to reach the FBD Men's Irish Open final today as he fell to a straight sets defeat to Britain's Josh Goodall.

Castleknock man McGee, who was the defending champion at Fitzwilliam Tennis Club in Dublin, went down 6-4 6-4.

Goodall will face Michael Look in the decider after the Australian overcame Frenchman Albano Olivetti 6-3 6-4.

The singles finals will take place at 2.30pm tomorrow at Fitzwilliam, with entry free of charge and no tickets required.

While McGee's singles hopes have been dashed, he still has a doubles final to look forward to tonight.

McGee will be teaming up with Spaniard Jaime Pulgar-Garcia, and they will face French pairing Albano Olivetti and Elie Rousset.
