Munich, Germany – Croatian third-seed Marin Cilic booked his place in the final of Munich's BMW Open with a straight sets win over wildcard Tommy Haas in Saturday's semi-final.

Cilic needed just 75 minutes to secure a 6-3, 6-4 win over former world number two Haas, who defeated Marcos Baghdatis in Friday's quarter-finals and also saw off top seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga earlier in the competition.

In Sunday's final, the 23-year-old Cilic will now face either Spain's Feliciano Lopez, the second seed, or Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber who meet later on Saturday in the other semi-final. – Sapa-AFP
