Chennai: World No.8 Stanislas Wawrinka and Eduard Roger-Vasselin survived close semi-final matches here on Saturday to make it to the title round of the Aircel Chennai Open.

The 28-year-old Swiss Wawrinka, winner here in 2011, looked relieved when Canadian World No.32 Vasek Pospisil conceded the match due to a sore lower back at 5-5 in the second set after the top seed had taken the first at 6-4.

Pospisil, who had Wawrinka, the top seed, in a corner in the second set, thus became the fifth player in the tournament to retire.
