In Sunday's title match, Ferrer will play seventh-seeded Grigor Dimotrov of Bulgaria, who defeated wild card Benoit Paire of France 4-6, 6-2, 6-2.

Ferrer will be going for his third title of the year and first since February. Dimitrov opened the year with his first career final in Brisbane, Australia, but entered Stockholm on a four-match losing streak.
