Brisbane - Defending champion Andy Roddick has beaten Kevin Anderson of South Africa 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 to advance to the final of the Brisbane International against top-seeded Robin Soderling of Sweden.

Earlier Saturday, Soderling beat 2009 champion Radek Stepanek 6-3, 7-5 in the other semifinal.

Soderling, a two-time French Open finalist, broke the Czech player in the first service game Saturday and quickly led 3-0.

In the second set, Stepanek saved a match point in the 10th game and broke Soderling's service, ending the Swedish player's run of 37 straight service game wins in Brisbane. But Soderling broke back in the 11th game, then held service in the 12th to win the match.
