Tennis


STUTTGART, Germany — Feliciano Lopez upset Tomas Berdych 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-4, and Mischa Zverev ended veteran Tommy Haas‘ run in the Stuttgart Open quarterfinals on Friday.

Lopez saved all nine break points he faced against the third-seeded Berdych.

Zverev defeated Haas 6-4, 6-4 for a semifinal against Lopez.

The 39-year-old Haas, who defeated Roger Federer in the second round on Wednesday, was playing for the last time at the grass-court tournament.

“I’m a bit sorry, especially because I could always hear his daughter, who shouted, ‘Come on, Daddy!'” Zverev said. “They’re special moments. He’s a champion.”

Also, the fourth-seeded Lucas Pouille defeated Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 for a semifinal against French compatriot Benoit Paire, who beat Poland’s Jerzy Janowicz 6-1, 7-6 (4).
