Australia's Matosevic reaches first ATP final

Marinko Matosevic of Australia reached his first career ATP final, beating Dudi Sela of Israel 5-7, 6-4, 7-6 (7) Saturday at the Delray Beach International.
The 173rd-ranked Matosevic needed five match points to close out the 2-hour, 54-minute semifinal match.
He finally won on his third match point in the third-set tiebreaker after double-faulting on the first one and hitting the ball into the net on the second.
Matosevic won when the 75th-ranked Sela netted a backhand.
In the final, he will face the winner of the other semifinal between top-seeded John Isner of the United States and seventh seed Kevin Anderson of South Africa.
