Paris - Fourth-seeded David Ferrer survived an early onslaught from Michael Llodra to beat the Frenchman 7-5, 6-3 and set up a Paris Masters final against Polish qualifier Jerzy Janowicz.

Ferrer, who has lost his previous three Masters finals, saved 10 break points in the first set — seven of those in his first two service games — as Llodra attacked aggressively and served confidently.

Llodra had not lost his serve before in the tournament, but was broken three times by Ferrer — the first time in the 12th game.

Llodra had lengthy massage on his lower back when trailing 3-0 in the second set.

Earlier, Janowicz became the first qualifier in eight years to reach the final in Paris after beating Gilles Simon of France 6-4, 7-5.
