KUALA LUMPUR – David Ferrer advanced to his 50th career final after he and Feliciano Lopez both survived gruelling semi-final encounters at the Malaysian Open on Saturday to set up an all-Spanish decider. Ferrer, the top seed, clawed his back after losing the first set to beat Germany's Benjamin Becker 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 after the veteran Lopez won a tense shootout with Australia's Nick Kyrgios 7-6(2), 7-6(5). Ferrer, 32, has a 24-25 record in career finals and will be appearing in his fourth championship match this year, having already racked up titles in Qatar, Rio and Mexico, in January and February. Lopez, seeded second in Kuala Lumpur, fired 12 aces past Kyrgios, 14 years his junior, to advance to his second ATP final this year. Ferrer and Lopez have played each other 14 times over the past decade.
