Metz - World number 10 beat France's Gilles Simon to qualify for the ATP Metz final on Saturday after a come-from-behind 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 win.

It took the 23-year-old Austrian top seed two hours and 17 minutes to beat fourth seed Simon, and the victory sets up a final Sunday against either Belgium's David Goffin or Frenchman Lucas Pouille.
