Zagreb - Croatia's Marin Cilic and top seed Tommy Haas of Germany have won their respective semi-finals on Saturday to secure their places in the $420 000 ATP Zagreb Indoor Open final.

The fifth-seeded Croat easily defeated Bjorn Phau of Germany 6-3, 6-4, while Haas experienced greater difficulty in dispatching Britain's Daniel Evans 5-7, 6-4, 6-3.

Cilic is seeking his fourth title in Zagreb after wins in 2009, 2010 and 2013.

"It's true, so far I'm doing well. Not only did I not lost a match but not even one set," the 25-year-old said.

"I wouldn't mind if this streak continues on Sunday."

In the first set Cilic had a break at 4-3 and in the second one he broke Phau's serve three times.

At 5-3 he missed five match balls before winning in 1 hour and 24 minutes.
