Söderling lurches into Swedish Open final
06:52 CEST+02:00
Home favourite and top seed Robin Söderling had to dig deep on Saturday to overcome the challenge of David Ferrer and set up a Swedish Open final encounter with Nicolas Almagro.

Söderling, the world number five and French Open runner-up, saw off Ferrer 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the Båstad ATP claycourt tournament, a day after also requiring three sets to see off Italy's Andreas Seppi, the world 76.

Fourth seed Almagro eased past fellow Spaniard Tommy Robredo 6-1, 6-3.

Söderling leads his career head-to-head with Almagro 3-2, but the Spaniard won their last meeting on clay in Madrid in May.
