UMAG — Uruguayan qualifier Pablo Cuevas extended his run of shocks by beating number-one seed Fabio Fognini to reach the Croatian Open final yesterday.

He will meet defending champion and number-two seed Tommy Robredo of Spain, who disposed of third-seed Marin Cilic, to get a place in the final.

Cuevas, who claimed his maiden tour title win at the Swedish Open this month, defeated top-seed Fognini of Italy 6-3, 6-4 in one hour and four minutes.

Cuevas raced to a 3-0 lead after two breaks and wrapped up the first set in less than 30 minutes.
