  • Robredo upsets Wawrinka, into Casablanca final

    Robredo upsets Wawrinka, into Casablanca final Tommy Robredo overcomes Stanislas Wawrinka in three sets on Saturday in Casablanca. Robredo awaits either Kevin Anderson or Martin Klizan in the title match.


    Tommy Robredo is through to his first ATP final in more than two years after taking out Stanislas Wawrinka 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the semis of the Grand Prix Hassan II on Saturday afternoon. Robredo broke serve five times and struck three aces without double-faulting to advance in one hour and 35 minutes.

    Wawrinka came out firing and completely dominated the first set. Casablanca's No. 1 seed dropped only five points in four service games, so two breaks of his own were more than enough to take it.

    Robredo had bounced back nicely from some tense situations against Benoit Paire in the quarters, and he did the same in this one. The 30-year-old Spaniard fought off several break points early in the second and that seemed to turn the tide. Robredo raised his level while an increasingly-disgruntled Wawrinka lost his way. A solid hold by Robredo at 5-3 forced a decisive set.

    Wawrinka showed no signs of recovering in the third. The 17th-ranked Swiss earned one scalp of his opponent's serve but he was broken three times in four service games. Barely even moving for shots in the final game, Wawrinka saw Robredo serve out the proceedings at love at 5-2.

    Next up for the world No. 72 is either Kevin Anderson or Martin Klizan.
