Berdych, Garcia-Lopez reach Shenzhen final

Top seed Tomas Berdych reached the final of the rain-delayed Shenzhen Open where he will meet fourth seed Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in Monday’s final.

In a rain-interrupted match on Sunday, Berdych beat Spanish third seed Tommy Robredo 6-1, 6-4 and Garcia-Lopez came from a set down to beat second seed Marin Cilic 1-6, 7-5, 6-3.

In his match, Berdych was leading Robredo 6-1, 3-3, deuce, when the players had to leave the court due to rain before coming back on to win and reach the final.

In the other semi-final, Garcia-Lopez beat Cilic for the second time in 2015 after having to leave the court in the third set before returning to win and make the final.

Berdych and Garcia-Lopez have faced each other six times in the past with three wins apiece.
