Pablo Andujar, Juan Monaco advance to Swiss Open final

Andujar, ranked No. 71, beat fourth-seeded Fernando Verdasco 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-1 in an all-Spain semi-final at the clay-court Roy Emerson Arena.

Unseeded pair Pablo Andujar and Juan Monaco advanced on Saturday to the Swiss Open title match.

Andujar, ranked No. 71, beat fourth-seeded Fernando Verdasco 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-1 in an all-Spain semi-final at the clay-court Roy Emerson Arena.

Argentina's Monaco rallied from losing the first three games to win 6-3, 7-6 (4) against seventh-seeded Robin Haase of the Netherlands.

Monaco, now 105th-ranked two years after peaking at No. 10, will seek his ninth career title on Sunday, and Andujar his third.

Andujar wasted a winning chance in the second set when, two points from victory at 5-3, he sent down back-to-back double faults.

However, he dominated the decider with three service breaks.
