Umag - Italy's Fabio Fognini won his 13th successive match on Saturday, reaching the Croatia Open final with a 6-0, 3-6, 7-6 (7/3) win over France's Gael Monfils.

Fognini, 26, will tackle either Tommy Robredo or Andreas Seppi in Sunday's final where he will be looking to pick up a third title in three weeks after victories in Stuttgart and Hamburg.

The Italian led 5-0 in the final set but then was pulled back to 5-5, saving three match points in the 11th game before he took the tie-breaker.
