Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Philipp Kohlschreiber and Joao Sousa ad­vanced to the fi­nal of the Gen­er­ali Open in Kitzbue­hel, Aus­tria, on Fri­day, with both play­ers seek­ing their first ti­tle of the sea­son. Sousa ended the run of Aus­trian wild card Se­bas­tian Ofner, who ap­peared

in his maiden semi­fi­nal, with a 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) vic­tory. The 62nd-ranked Por­tuguese will seek his third ca­reer ti­tle and first since win­ning in Va­len­cia two years ago. Ear­lier, Kohlschreiber held serve through­out against sec­ond-seeded Fabio Fognini and de­feated the 25th-ranked Ital­ian 7-5, 6-3. Fognini missed out on his sec­ond fi­nal in as many weeks af­ter win­ning his fifth ca­reer ti­tle in Gs­taad, Switzer­land, last week.
