    (3) Juan Monaco def. (Q) Guido Pella 6-4, 7-6(8)

    Third seed Juan Monaco made the final by virtue of his straight-set ousting of fellow Argentine Guido Pella. The 29-year-old tallied three service breaks and eight aces through one hour and 57 minutes of play.

    "It's my first final this year, so I'm very happy," Monaco assured. "I played a couple of good matches, so I've got good rhythm. We played a great match. We've known each other for a long time and have had many practices together. In the second set especially, we fought until the last point."

    (6) Jarkko Nieminen def. Igor Sijsling 7-5, 4-6, 6-3

    Sixth seed Jarkko Nieminen is through to the final after holding off Dutchman Igor Sijsling in three sets. The veteran converted five of 8 break points through an hour and 52 minutes of competition.

    "It was quite a roller-coaster; up and down from both players," Nieminen assessed. "It was a crucial moment at 0-2, 15/40 (in the third set). I think that was half a match point. But, luckily, I managed to play some of my best tennis of the day in that moment and won five games in a row.

    "It's been a long time since I made a final on clay, so that's very motivating that I can still do some things better than during the past couple of years."
