ZAGREB, Croatia, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- No. 1 seed Tommy Haas and Croatian favorite Marin Cilic logged semifinal wins Saturday to advance to the title match at the Zagreb Indoors tournament.

Germany's Haas advanced to the final with a 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 decision over unseeded Daniel Evans, who made the tournament as a "lucky loser" and mounted a surprising run through the field.

The 35-year-old Haas will be seeking his 16th career title against three-time Zagreb champ Cilic, who breezed past German qualifier Bjorn Phau 6-3, 6-4 in Saturday's other semifinal.

Cilic, the fifth seed, won the event last year as well as in 2009 and 2010. He is 9-8 in title matches.
