Gstaad -Top seed Janko Tipsarevic remains in contention to win a second title in as many weeks after setting up a clash with Brazil's Thomaz Bellucci in the final of the ATP event in Gstaad.

The Serbian world No 8 beat unseeded Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu 7-6 (12/10), 6-3 while Bellucci overcame Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov 7-6 (7/3), 7-6 (7/5).

Bellucci has past experience of winning here after triumphing in 2009, but Tipsarevic won the Stuttgart clay event just last week, beating world No 60 Bellucci in three sets in the semi-finals.
