"It's great to make the final," Roger-Vasselin said. "It was a long, tough match both mentally and physically. I'm relieved to have won. It's been a great start to 2014."

The 30-year-old Frenchman battled through the difficult, lengthy match against Granollers, who pushed it to three sets despite not being in his finest form. Roger-Vasselin played aggressively, crashing the net and a series of winners that pushed him to the final. 

Wawrinka holds a 2-1 record in three matches versus Roger-Vasselin. However, the only top 10 player in this field lost his most recent match against the underdog, falling in straight sets last April at Basel.
