Gstaad, Switzerland, July 30:  Fernando Verdasco beat top-seeded Nicolas Almagro 6-7 (2), 7-6 (2), 6-3 on Saturday to set up an all-Spanish final against Marcel Granollers at the Swiss Open.


The fourth-seeded Verdasco, seeking his first title of the season, won in 2 hours, 10 minutes against Almagro, who beat two opponents Friday to reach the semifinals of a rain-affected event.

Verdasco broke to start the third set—the first of the match—then broke Almagro a third time to complete the victory.

The eighth-seeded Granollers defeated Mikhail Youzhny 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 for his first career victory against the Russian.

Granollers trailed 2-0 in the deciding set then reeled off six straight games to reach his first final of the season. AP
