Montanes vs. Monfils for Mercedes Cup final

Fifth-seeded Albert Montanes of Spain beat compatriot Juan Carlos Ferrero for the first time in his career to reach the Mercedes Cup final on Saturday.
Montanes, bidding for his second ATP clay-court title of the season, knocked off former French Open champion Ferrero 6-3, 7-6 (6).
The match was postponed during the first set due to rain.
Montanes had lost his previous five matches against Ferrero.
In the final he will take on third-seeded Gael Monfils of France.
Monfils reached his first ATP final of the season by knocking off unseeded Spaniard Daniel Gimeno-Traver 6-4, 4-6, 6-0.
Monfils is hoping to claim his third ATP title of his career.
