MELBOURNE, Australia -- Former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro beat Marcos Baghdatis 6-4, 6-1 on Friday to set up a final against Lleyton Hewitt at the Kooyong Classic, an exhibition tournament ahead of the Australian Open.

No. 7-ranked del Potro has beaten former No. 1-ranked Hewitt, the 2011 Kooyong champion, in two of their three previous matches. The 31-year-old Hewitt, preparing for his 17th Australian Open, beat No. 6-ranked Tomas Berdych on Thursday to secure his spot in the final.

In Friday's other match at the promotion-relegation tournament, big-serving Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., lost 6-4, 6-4 to Fabio Fognini of Italy.
