DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Edouard Roger-Vasselin upset top-seeded John Isner 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 in the semifinals of the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships on Saturday.

The 15th-ranked Isner could never find his form against Roger-Vasselin, who was playing in his first career ATP World Tour semifinal. Roger-Vasselin was 0-5 in career quarterfinals. His father, Christophe, was a French Open semifinalist in 1983 and ranked as high as 39th.

Roger-Vasselin will play 109th-ranked qualifier Ernests Gulbis of Latvia in the final.

Gulbis, who won the title here in 2010, upset second-seeded Tommy Haas of Germany 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (2) to reach the final.
