Gonzalez will face Calleri

7/23/2005 - Tennis

AMERSFOORT, Netherlands -- Fernando Gonzalez of Chile
overpowered Spain's David Sanchez 6-2, 6-1 Saturday to move into
the final of the Priority Telecom Open.

Gonzalez will face Argentina's Agustin Calleri, who beat Ivo
Minar of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-4 in the other semifinal.

Gonzalez's serves and returns were too strong and accurate for
Sanchez, who looked tired and unfocused. Sanchez double-faulted to
surrender his first break in the sixth game of the first set.

The 27th-ranked Gonzalez broke Sanchez again in the second game
of the second set to cruise to victory.

Gonzalez, a quarterfinalist at Wimbledon this summer, has won
two of three previous professional matches against Calleri, all on
clay. He lost their most recent meeting at the quarterfinals of the
Estoril tournament in 2003.
