Guillermo Garcia-Lopez reaches final at Zagreb Indoors

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) Third-seeded Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain defeated Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus 6-4, 6-4 Saturday to reach the final of the Zagreb Indoors.

Garcia-Lopez will face either Andreas Seppi of Italy or fellow Spaniard Marcel Granollers on Sunday. It will be his seventh career final and the first since winning in Casablanca last year.

Garcia-Lopez broke Baghdatis in the ninth game of the second set for a 5-4 lead and then served out the match. Baghdatis took a 2-0 lead in the first set but was quickly broken back and dropped his serve again at 4-4.

Baghdatis was appearing in his first ATP semifinal since Brisbane in January 2013.
