    Del Potro battles Zemlja for Vienna title World No. 8 Juan Martin Del Potro will be looking to win his 12th ATP World Tour title, as he takes on first-time finalist Grega Zemlja. The top seed is seeking his third crown of the season Sunday afternoon.

    World No. 8 Juan Martin Del Potro advanced to a second consecutive final at the Erste Bank Open after downing Luxembourg's Gilles Muller in straight sets. The 24-year-old held 12 of 12 service games en route to a 7-6(4), 7-6(5) victory in an hour and 51 minutes. Del Potro has tallied 53 aces through three matches.

    Del Potro is bidding for his third ATP World Tour title of the season, having sealed championship-winning runs earlier this year in Marseille and Estoril. With a win on Sunday, the Argentine would extend his career title count to 12.

    Surprise finalist Grega Zemlja is through to the Vienna final following his upset victory over 2nd seed Janko Tipsarevic. The 26-year-old Slovenian rallied to a three-sets win in two hours and 34 minutes, 3-6, 7-6(5), 6-2.

    "It was an interesting and difficult situation for me before the tournament. I was preparing last week for this tournament and I found out I was the first on the waiting list to get into the main draw in Stockholm," Zemlja confessed.

    "So I was deciding whether to go to Stockholm or play in the qualification here. I said I’d rather play here and that I have a good feeling. I think it was a pretty good decision. I don’t regret it."

    Prediction: Del Potro in straight sets.
