Spain’s Stockholm Open slump is officially over, thanks to David Ferrer.
The 31-year-old Spanish tennis star defeated fifth-seeded Ernests Gulbis of Latvia 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Saturday to reach the Stockholm Open final.
With the win, Ferrer becomes the first Spaniard in 37 years to reach the tournament’s title match.
He will face seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria, who defeated wild card Benoit Paire of France 4-6, 6-2, 6-2, in Sunday’s title match.
Ferrer, the tournament’s top seed, will be going for his third title of the year and his first since February.
