Shanghai: Somdev Devvarman extended his excellent run at the ATP Shanghai Challenger by reaching the singles final with a hard-fought win over Italy's Luca Vanni on Saturday.

Somdev overcame an indifferent start to beat Vanni 1-6, 6-4, 6-4 in a gruelling two hour and 14 minutes semifinal of the USD 50,000 hard court tournament.

After struggling for a long period, Somdev will have a shot at two titles on Sunday as he has already reached the doubles final with compatriot Sanam Singh.
