CHENNAI, India (AP) -- Second-seeded Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia rallied past semifinalist Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia 4-6, 6-2 6-2 and will play Roberto Bautista-Agut of Spain for the Chennai Open title.

The 80th-ranked Bautista-Agut followed up his stunning win over top seed and sixth-ranked Tomas Berdych with a victory over fifth-seeded Frenchman Benoit Paire 3-6, 6-1, 6-4.

Ninth-ranked Tipsarevic, who lost a close final to Canadian Milos Raonic here last year, praised Bedene and predicted he would soon be a top-50 player.
