    UNICEF Open- Dodig, Tursunov reach final Ivan Dodig is through to the championship match in s-Hertogenbosch, after scoring a straight-set win over fellow seed Marcos Baghdatis. He will contest the title match against Dmitry Tursunov, who took out Xavier Malisse.

    (4) Ivan Dodig def. (2/WC) Marcos Baghdatis 7-6(4), 6-1

    Fourth seed Ivan Dodig reached the final, following his 7-6(4), 6-1 ousting of second seed Marcos Baghdatis. The Cypriot defeated Denis Gremelmayr in the quarterfinal, then returned later in the day to play the semi. Dodig converted four of 6 break points, en route to a 7-6(4), 6-1 success in an hour and 29 minutes.

    "It’s a nice feeling to win and reach the final," said Dodig. "Of course I can be more happy also about my performance on the court. I think I was playing a very high level today and in the end I think I deserved to win."

    Dmitry Tursunov def. (3) Xavier Malisse 6-3, 7-6(1)

    Dmitry Tursunov advanced to the title match, by virtue of his straight-set victory against third seed Xavier Malisse. Like Baghdatis, Malisse returned to play a second match after taking out quarterfinal-round opponent Alex Bogomolov Jr.

    The Russian collected five aces and three service breaks, through to a 6-3, 7-6(1) win in one hour and 44 minutes.

    "I don’t know Dodig very well. I know that he’s been doing really well this year; he won Zagreb. He’s been doing well on all sorts of surfaces. He’s beaten good players this week, so I’m going to have to come out and play until the last point, and take the initiative when I have the chance."
