Stuttgart - France's Lucas Pouille saw off his compatriot Benoit Paire in the grass court tournament in Stuttgart on Saturday to set up a final against Feliciano Lopez.

The world No 16, seeded fourth, came through a tight match 7-6 (7/5), 7-5, with his crucial break in the 11th game of the second set the only one of the match.

The 23-year-old Pouille, who reached the quarter-finals at Wimbledon and US Open last year, will face Spaniard Lopez on Sunday as he looks for a third ATP Tour title.

The experienced Lopez had earlier edged out German Mischa Zverev in the first semi-final, 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (7/4), 7-5.
