Stockholm:

Top-seeded Robin Soderling withdrew from the Stockholm Open semifinals on Saturday because of an elbow injury, allowing Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus to advance to the final where he will play Olivier Rochus.

The Belgian outlasted Tomaz Bellucci of Brazil 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-3 to reach Sunday's final at Royal Tennis Hall.

Soderling has been bothered by a sore right elbow since July, when he withdrew from the quarterfinals in Washington.

The 10th-ranked Swede, a surprising finalist in the French Open this year, was the only seeded player left in the tournament.
