    Haas, Kohlschreiber lead pack of Germans in Munich semis Croatia's Ivan Dodig is the only non-German of the four semifinalists, with Daniel Brands joining Philipp Kohlschreiber and Tommy Haas in action on Saturday.

    Tommy Haas (3) vs. Ivan Dodig

    Ivan Dodig gave Tommy Haas a hard fight in their only other match, a showdown on the hardcourts of Delray Beach earlier this year. The German eventually won in three sets.

    Dodig has been on fire this week, first dispatching No. 2 seed Marin Cilic and then taking out No. 5 Alexandr Dolgopolov in the quarters.

    This match could be a real barn-stormer. Haas is also playing well this week, and comes into the match off a great season in which he has surged back up to No. 14 in the rankings.

    Haas will have the benefit of the home crowd and a dangerous backhand, while Dodig will be riding a wave of confidence into the semifinals.

    Prediction - Haas in three sets.

    Philipp Kohlschreiber (4) vs. Daniel Brands

    In this battle of the Germans, veteran Philipp Kohlschreiber will take on countryman Daniel Brands, who has had a week similar to Dodig's. Brands took out Jurgen Melzer, Gael Monfils and No. 1 seed Janko Tipsarevic en route to the semifinals.

    Kohlschreiber had a quieter run through the draw. He has not yet faced a seed, but he's been efficient with a pair of straight-set wins.

    Prediction - Kohlschreiber will be the favorite, but with the form Brands has shown, the world No. 69 might just pull off the upset.
