Andreas Seppi provided little resistance against Roger Federer, who breezed by the Italian and into the finals at the Hamburg Masters tennis tournament in Germany.
The Swiss tennis ace recorded a 6-3, 6-1 victory on Saturday afternoon over the world's 43rd-ranked player, who appeared in a career-best showing.
"It was quite a long first set and I created a lot of opportunities which wore him down for the second," said Federer after the rain-hit match.
He will face Spaniard Rafael Nadal, who defeated Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic, in Sunday's final.
Federer beat Nadal 2-6, 6-2, 6-0 in last year's final on the clay court in Hamburg but has struggled against the 21-year-old so far this year.
