Nishikori fights way into Geneva Open semis

Mischa Zverev of Germany returns a ball

Stanislas "Stan" Wawrinka of Switzerland celebrates a point against Mischa Zverev of Germany during the final match at the Geneva Open tennis tournament, in Geneva, Switzerland, Saturday, May 27, 2017.

The big-serving American took the opening set without losing his serve and then went up an early break of serve in the second set against the defending champion.

The tournament, in which he was a last-minute entry, was Nishikori's final tune-up before the start of the French Open on Sunday.

Geneva - Japanese second seed Kei Nishikori saved three match points to defeat South Africa's Kevin Anderson 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (8/6) on Thursday to reach the Geneva Open semi-finals.

Second seed Tsonga served 14 aces to reach the 26th final of his career, and his first on the red dirt, where he will face Tomas Berdych after the Czech defeated top seed Milos Raonic of Canada 7-6 (5) 7-6 (2).

Zverev served for the set at 5-3, and trailed 0-30 before reeling off four straight points including two volley winners. Still, he soon created a second match point with a forehand crosscourt service return for a victor.

Stan Wawrinka fought back from a set down to retain his Geneva Open title and end Mischa Zverev's hopes of a maiden ATP Tour crown.

"I would have hated you if you had beaten me in two tournaments", Wawrinka said to his opponent during the post-match ceremony.

The 32-year-old Wawrinka, who has struggled on clay thus far this season, on Thursday worked out some of the kinks in his game in a confidence-boosting 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 win over Querrey, reports Efe. "It's important to win some matches like this".

Zverev, 29, stunned the tennis world at the Australian Open when he beat World No 1 Andy Murray before losing to eventual victor Roger Federer.
