KITZBUEHEL, Austria -- Agustin Calleri and Juan Ignacio Chela will meet in an all-Argentine final after winning their semifinal matches Saturday at the Generali Open.
The ninth-seeded Calleri rallied to beat Fernando Verdasco of Spain, a finalist last year, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3. Chela, seeded seventh, beat Mikhail Youzhny of Russia 6-2, 4-6, 6-4.
Saturday's semifinals were delayed for four hours due to rain.
Verdasco had nine backhand errors in the first set, which he still won. Early in the second, he got treatment for a blister on his left foot, which hampered his movement on the court.
Calleri took advantage and won the next two sets. Once ranked 16 but now No. 59, Calleri got treatment for a sore muscle in his right leg, but didn't expect troubles in Sunday's best-of-five final.
"It's not a real injury, but I just slightly overstretched it," he said. "That's normal, as I've played a lot this week. I feel good."
In the other semifinal, Chela broke Youzhny's serve twice in the first set as the Russian got only 45 percent of his first serves in. One break for the eight-seeded Youzhny in the second was enough to level the score.
In the third set, Chela missed a match point and lost his serve at 5-3 up, but broke back immediately to wrap up the victory.
