Soderling and Almagro reach Swedish Open final

Robin Soderling has come from a set behind to reach the final of the Swedish Open, where he will face Spain's Nicolas Almagro.
Top-seeded Soderling, who won the clay-court championship last year, downed David Ferrer of Spain in three sets 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 on Saturday.
Ferrer started well, breaking Soderling in the third game of the match and went on to win the first set.
The big-serving Swede, who hit 11 aces in the match, came back to win after breaking Ferrer once in the second and then twice again in the third.
Fourth-seeded Almagro swept compatriot Tommy Robredo 6-1, 6-3 on center court in only 68 minutes.
Two-time champion Robredo was no match for Almagro, who broke his serve three times in the first set.
