Top-seeded Andre Agassi beat Spain's Fernando Verdasco, 7-6 (4), 6-2, on Friday to reach the Stockholm Open semifinals for the first time.
It's the 34-year-old Agassi's first final four berth at the tournament; he lost in the quarterfinals in 1989 and '94, his previous appearances.
His semifinal foe is fourth-seeded Tommy Haas, who defeated Olivier Rochus of Belgium 6-3, 7-6 (4).
Verdasco began well, holding at love in each of his first four service games.
"He's tough for anybody to play, a left-hander with a very big serve," Agassi said. "He can hit in every direction, with spin, flat. It's a difficult serve to read and to return."
But Agassi finally broke Verdasco in the second game of the second set, then broke him again to end the match.
