Wawrinka and Zverev in St Petersburg final

Wawrinka and Zverev in St Petersburg final

Stan Wawrinka (pic) will face Alexander Zverev in the St Petersburg Open final.

Nearly nothing could separate the players throughout the encounter, each player made two breaks in the set they won before decider, and Sascha took just 4 points more in the end.

Seeded first in St. Petersburg, Wawrinka had to come through a tough first set against Bautista Agut.

Wawrinka saved one championship point with a brilliant cross-court backhand, but a passing shot gave the German the title in his third career final.

Third seed Berdych defeated Paolo Lorenzi 6-4, 6-3, while Zverev was a 6-2, 6-2 victor over Mikhail Youzhny, the man responsible for knocking out Milos Raonic on Thursday.

"He's a great player, a great fighter", Wawrinka said of Bautista-Agut.

Zverev, 19, was stretched to go the distance to win a tight match 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 against Swiss Wawrinka, Reuters reported. It can not get any better for the 22-year-old Frenchman than his five-set U.S. Open stunner over Rafael Nadal en route to the quarters, but a first career ATP title would certainly be nice. He last won a men's doubles tournament at the 2015 New Zealand Open, partnering South Africa's Raven Klaasen. It will be the first time the two have played each other.

The third seeds have lost 6-3, 7-6 to Chile's Julio Peralta and Argentine Horacio Zeballos.

Pouille outdueled David Goffin 7-6, 6-1 to reach his second career ATP final.

Fourth-seeded Simon was up a break at 5-4 in the second set, but could not seize his chance to serve out the match.
