Tommy Robredo beats top-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka to set up Casablanca final vs Kevin Anderson

Tommy Robredo of Spain will aim for his 11th career title against second-seeded Kevin Anderson in the Grand Prix Hassan II final after they rallied to win their semifinals on Saturday.

Robredo beat top-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 to reach his first final since winning on outdoor clay two years.

Anderson followed with a 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 win against third-seeded Martin Klizan of Slovakia. He's seeking his third career title — and first on clay — on Sunday.

Robredo improved to 5-1 overall against Wawrinka, having won all three of their matches on clay. This was their first match since 2008. Wawrinka broke Robredo's serve twice and did not face a break point in the first set.

Anderson saved five break points in the second set and opened a 4-0 lead in the third.
