"The level is very close, maybe the first five or six guys are a level ahead, but then in the top 100 everybody can beat everybody, it really depends on the game and how you feel that day," Seppi said.

"I knew the first round was was going to be very tough and it was a very difficult match and a good fight, but fortunately I won and after first round I've played some very good tennis.

"I've never played Marton but he's just had a great year and was playing very well at the end of the season, he's a difficult opponent and is playing aggressive tennis, so it will be another tough match."

Fucsovics advanced to the final after ousting Frenchman Maxime Janvier 6-3 5-7 6-2 and is gunning for his fifth challenger title.

"It's a big achievement to win a challenger and a win against Seppi would be huge, he's a great player but in the final anything can happen," Fucsovics said.
