Andreas Seppi: Had no problems with Malek Jaziri in Kremlin Cup semi-finals
Second seed Andreas Seppi eased into the final of the Kremlin Cup with a 6-3 6-1 win over Malek Jaziri at the Olympic Stadium in Moscow.
Jaziri was making history as the first Tunisian to play in the semi-final of an ATP event but his fairytale run was brought to an end in convincing style.
Seppi broke his opponent a total of five times in a dominant display as his opponent struggled constantly behind his second serve.
The 28-year-old Italian will be competing his fourth Tour final in 2012 having reached just two in the rest of his career combined.
"It is the end of the season, but I am going to give it all in my last three events - Moscow, Basel and Paris," Seppi told the ATP's official website.
"It has been the best year in my career so far and I feel great playing indoors."
Seppi will face Thomaz Bellucci in Sunday's final after the Brazilian beat Croat Ivo Karlovic 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 6-4 in the second semi-final.
"For me it's very special to be playing in this final," said the 24-year-old Bellucci, whose four previous finals have all been on clay.
"But it'll be a completely different match tomorrow, with lots of long rallies."
