Pair advance at Generali
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.
