GSTAAD, Switzerland (AP) Top-seeded David Goffin of Belgium eased to a 6-4, 6-2 win against two-time champion Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil in the Swiss Open semifinals on Saturday.

In Sunday's final, the 14th-ranked Goffin will face 24th-ranked Dominic Thiem of Austria.

Thiem beat second-seeded Feliciano Lopez of Spain 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3 to maintain a winning run he started by taking the Croatia Open title last weekend.

Goffin never allowed Bellucci a break point in the match, and took control after converting the only chance to break in the first set at 4-4.


The 24-year-old Belgian seeks his third career title and his first on clay.

Thiem never dropped serve, landed 79 percent of his first serves and was helped by Lopez's nine double-faults.
