Robin Soderling came from a set behind Saturday 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, beat David Ferrer of Spain 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
"I felt already this morning that I was playing better, and the more the match went on, the better I felt," said Soderling, who struggled to beat unseeded Andreas Seppi in Friday's quarterfinals. "It's great to be in the final again."
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 to advance to Sunday's final.
Two-time champion Robredo was no match for Almagro, who broke his serve three times in the first set. Almagro didn't give up any break points during the match on another warm day in Bastad, southern Sweden.
Almagro beat Soderling the last time the pair met, winning in straight sets at this year's Madrid Masters.
