Second seed Janko Tipsarevic will face Roberto Bautista Agut in the final of the Aircel Chennai Open on Sunday.
Serbian Tipsarevic, ranked ninth in the world, had to come from a set down to beat Slovenia's Aljaz Bedene in a semi-final lasting more than two hours.
Bautista Agut, the world number 80 from Spain, then upset fifth seed Benoit Paire in another three-set clash to reach his first tour final.
A single break was enough for Bedene to take the first set against Tipsarevic but the 28-year-old top-10 star stepped up a gear after that, taking both of his break opportunities in the second set and two more in the third to complete a 4-6 6-2 6-2 win.
Tipsarevic told atpworldtour.com: "I started the match pretty well and I had my chances every service game, but for some reason in the first set I took two steps back and started to push the ball into the court. It allowed him to run around to hit his forehand and this is the reason why he won the first.
"I felt he lost focus at the beginning of the second set, but I was playing closer to the baseline and giving him less time. I saved two break points at 4-2 in the third set, if he had taken those points it would have been closer."
Bautista Agut also came from a set down to beat world number 47 Paire 3-6 6-1 6-4, in five minutes short of two hours.
Paire saved four break points as he took the first set but lost the second as Bautista Agut finally began taking his opportunities, breaking twice to win it.
The Spaniard then converted his third break point in the opening game of the third set, which featured two double-faults, but Paire immediately broke back.
The fifth seed could not push on from there though, and Bautista Agut wrapped the match up with a further break.
