DOHA, Qatar (AP) _ Top-seeded Tim Henman and surprising Rainer Schuttler of Germany advanced Saturday into the final of the $1 million Qatar Open tennis tournament.

Henman defeated Karim Alami of Morocco 6-4, 6-2, while Schuttler surprised seventh-seeded Cedric Pioline of France 3-6, 6-2, 7-5.

When Alami dropped his serve in the second set, he pounded the ball into a 60-foot high floodlight, bringing a code violation warning.

Schuttler upset Henman in a tournament last year.
