STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Top-seeded David Ferrer became the first Spaniard in 37 years to reach the Stockholm Open final when he beat fifth-seeded Ernests Gulbis of Latvia 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Saturday.

In Sunday's title match, Ferrer will play seventh-seeded Grigor Dimotrov of Bulgaria, who defeated wild card Benoit Paire of France 4-6, 6-2, 6-2.

Ferrer will be going for his third title of the year and first since February. Dimitrov opened the year with his first career final in Brisbane, Australia, but entered Stockholm on a four-match losing streak.
