Acapulco, Mexico:

Spaniard Fernando Verdasco defeated Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland 6-3, 6-3 on Friday to reach the Mexican Open final.

The eighth-seeded Verdasco didn't allow a single break opportunity to Wawrinka, cruising to victory at The Fairmont Acapulco Princess.

Wawrinka saved two match points while serving in the penultimate game, then saved another in the last game, but Verdasco finally served out the match.

Verdasco will play the final against either top-seeded David Ferrer of Spain or Santiago Giraldo of Colombia, who were to play later Friday.

In the women's tournament, No. 3 seed Sara Errani eliminated top-seeded Roberta Vinci in an all-Italian semifinal. Errani broke twice in each set to reach the final. The Italians are good friends and played the doubles tournament together.

The 36th-ranked Errani will be playing for her third WTA title.

The other semifinal will be played between No. 2 seed Flavia Pennetta of Italy and No. 4 seed Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania.
