Third seed Somdev Devvarman shrugged off a second set hiccup to breeze into the final of the ATP Challenger tournament at Charlotteville in the USA.

Somdev beat Ryan Sweeting 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 in a see-saw semifinal to set up a summit clash with second seeded American Kevin Kim, who downed compatriot Donald Young 6-2, 7-5.

The Indian went up after winning the first set but his American opponent crawled back into the game, winning the second set.

The wiry Indian raised his game by a few notches and in the decider proved his superiority to seal the match in his favour.
