Feliciano Lopez Advances To Mercedes Cup Final

Feliciano Lopez advances to Stuttgart Open quarters after win over Jeremy Chardy Lopez beats Berdych to reach Stuttgart Open semis
Spencer Simpson | 18 June, 2017, 00:46

Feliciano Lopez was unbreakable winning a tight test to advance to the Stuttgart final.

Spaniard Lopez hit back after losing the opening set on a tie-break to edge out fellow left-hander Zverev 6-7 (2/7) 7-6 (7/4) 7-5 in two hours and four minutes and reach his first ATP Tour final of the season. "Also the way I play from beginning to end - I was trying to be aggressive; I was trying not to wait too much for going for the victor, because Tommy is a very aggressive player, and if you let him play, you might not have so many chances on that court, which is quite fast".

The 39-year-old Haas, who defeated Roger Federer in the second round on Wednesday, was playing for the last time at the grass-court tournament, and he was accompanied by his six-year-old daughter Valentina at the post-match news conference, where she sat on his lap.

Muller broke Zverev twice early in the second set and sealed victory on his first match point with an ace to book a place in the final against third seed Ivo Karlovic.

Lucas Pouille joins Lopez in the final four as he beat Philipp Kohlschreiber, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.

Pouille's semifinal opponent will be another Frenchman, Benoit Paire, who ousted Jerzy Janowicz of Poland 6-1, 7-6 (4).
