MOSCOW, October 20 (RIA Novosti)
Italy's Andreas Seppi reached his fourth final of the season Saturday in Moscow with a crushing victory against Tunisia's Malek Jaziri.
Seppi won eight games in a row as he achieved a 6-3, 6-1 victory over world No. 112 Jaziri, who became the first player from his country to play in an ATP semifinal.
Brazilian fourth seed Thomaz Bellucci and big-serving Croatian Ivo Karlovic face off later Saturday for the right to play Seppi in Sunday's final.
Seppi proved too much for Jaziri after he broke the Tunisian at 3-3 and embarked on an eight-game winning streak that took him to the verge of victory at 5-0 in the second set.
The world No. 25 and Italian No. 1 is bidding for his third career title and second of the year after winning in Belgrade in May and Eastbourne last year.
Seppi was a quarterfinalist last year in his only previous appearance in Moscow, losing to German qualifier Michael Berrer.
Unseeded Jaziri was in his first Kremlin Cup and aiming to rescue his season after a recent slump saw him drop out of the top 100 from a career-high 69th spot in July.

We have witnessed the total defeat of western Ukraine, Western nationalists and the West in general, which made the unfortunate decision to support the anti-government activity. They failed to realize that the collapse of Yanukovych means the collapse of Ukrainian unity. They set fire to their own home and planted a time bomb under Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
