Fifth-seeded Fabio Fognini closed on his first ATP title with victory over Roberto Bautista Agut to reach the Mercedes Cup final.

The Italian, who shocked top seed Tommy Haas in the previous round, prevailed 6-1 6-3 against the Spaniard to advance to the third final of his career and the first this season.

He is the second Italian to reach the final of the clay-court tournament since Andrea Gaudenzi in 1994.

In Sunday's showpiece he will play second seed Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany, who saw off Romania's Victor Hanescu 6-3 6-3.
