    Ferrer upends Dodig for a spot in Valencia final David Ferrer dispatched qualifier Ivan Dodig to set up a Sunday final against Alexandr Dolgopolov.

    Croatia's Ivan Dodig, the qualifier who took out No. 7 seed Marin Cilic in the quarterfinals, put in another surprising performance in Saturday's semifinal against David Ferrer. But he didn't have enough this time to get the win over the world No. 5. Ferrer got a 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-1 victory.

    The first set was routine for Ferrer. The Spaniard did not face any break points and he secured a crucial break of the Dodig serve to take the one set lead.

    Dodig came back in the second set to make the semifinal interesting. The two men traded breaks of serve to force the tiebreaker. And even though Ferrer is sometimes considered an iron man of the ATP Tour, it was Dodig who came away with the 'breaker to level the match at a set apiece.

    Whatever momentum Dodig gained in the second set was quickly snuffed out by his opponent. Ferrer rolled to an easy 6-1 deciding-set scoreline to earn a spot in Sunday's final
