LYON, France (AP) Top-seeded Dominic Thiem will take on local favorite Gilles Simon in the final of the Lyon Open after winning two matches Friday.

The eighth-ranked Austrian first needed 50 minutes to complete a 6-7 (4), 7-6 (0), 6-4 victory over Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez after their quarterfinal match was suspended by darkness at one set apiece on Thursday evening. Thiem then defeated Dusan Lajovic of Serbia 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 in slightly under two hours.
