ROTTERDAM, Netherlands, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Ivan Ljubicic and Mikhail Youzhny won their semifinals Saturday and will meet for the title Sunday at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in the Netherlands.

Ljubicic, seeded third, came from behind to defeat No. 1 seed Nikolay Davydenko, 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-4). Youzhny rallied as well against Novak Djokovic, 3-6, 7-6 (9-7), 7-5.

Youzhny faced three match points before pulling out the win. It was the second time he has beaten Djokovic in as many weeks, having recorded a victory in the opening round at Marseille, France.

Youzhny will be playing in his first final in three years, and will be looking for his third career title. Ljubicic already has a title to his credit this year, having won the Australian Open tune-up in Doha, Qatar.
