Murray upsets No. 2 seed Canas, will play Robredo in final

METZ, France -- Andy Murray overcame
second seed Guillermo Canas of Argentina 7-6, 6-4 on Saturday to
reach the Open de Moselle final.

The third-seeded Scot, whose season has been disrupted by a
wrist injury, next plays top seed
Tommy Robredo of Spain, who beat Nicolas Mahut of France 7-5, 4-6, 6-4.

Murray, bidding for his third ATP title, won the tiebreak
7-2 after the opening set went with serve.

The players traded breaks in the second set before Murray
wrapped up the win on his first match point on Canas' serve.

"The key was my serve," Murray told a news conference. "I
did not have a single break point against me until late in the
match.

"This was a test. I now feel I'm getting close to my best
level."

Robredo and Murray have met only once, with the Spaniard
winning 6-2, 6-2 in the Los Angeles Open final last year.
