PARIS, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Fourth-seeded David Ferrer of Spain made it to the finals of the Paris Masters Saturday with a 7-5, 6-3 victory over France's Michael Llodra.

Ferrer saved 10-of-11 break points in the match -- and needed 70 minutes just to complete the first set -- before advancing to the finals where he will face Polish qualifier Jerzy Janowicz.

Janowicz upended Gilles Simon of France 6-4, 7-5 in a match in which he served up a dozen aces to Simon's three.

Janowicz kept up his strong late-season surge to reach an ATP finals for the first time. He beat Andy Murray in the third round and Janko Tipsarevic in the quarterfinals at Paris, and was a quarterfinalist at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow two weeks ago.
