CASABLANCA, Morocco, April 14 (UPI) -- Pablo Andujar will defend his Grand Prix Hassan II tennis title after both he and fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos completed semifinal victories Saturday.

The third-seeded Andujar, who defeated Italy's Potito Starace in last year's title match, converted five of his 11 break point opportunities in his 6-3, 7-5 semifinal win over Italian Flavio Cipolla.

Andujar reached his fifth career final.

He will be facing off against Ramos, who gutted out a 6-3, 7-6 (9-7) win over Russian Igor Andreev.

Ramos, seeded seventh, corralled his first finals appearance with Saturday's win.
