Tommy Haas beat second-seeded John Isner in straight sets Saturday to reach the final at the SAP Open.
The fourth-seeded Haas needed one hour to top his American opponent, posting a 6-3, 6-4 victory. The German veteran had lost to Isner in the second round at this event five years ago.
Haas will be appearing in his 25th career final and first since finishing runner-up at Washington last August. He captured his 13th and most recent title in Halle two months earlier.
The 34-year-old Haas will face either two-time defending champion Milos Raonic or Sam Querrey in Sunday's final.
The 2013 San Jose titlist will collect $98,700.
