Berdych, Cilic to play Dutch final

11:45 am on 16 February 2014

Czech tennis star Tomas Berdych and Croatia's Marin Cilic will square off in the Rotterdam ATP final after winning through the semis, as both men bid for a first career title in The Netherlands.

Third-seeded Berdych played impeccably to defeat Ernests Gulbis 6-3 6-2, the Latvian unable to back up his upset defeat of top-seeded titleholder Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina in the quarters.

Cilic lost serve for the first time this week but recovered for a 5-7 6-3 6-2 win over Dutchman Igor Sijsling, to go with his win over second seeded Scottish star Andy Murray in the last eight.
