Youzhny secured victory in the first all-Russian ATP Tour semi-final in more than three years, beating Dmitry Tursunov 6-2 6-4.
He now goes into Sunday’s final looking to win multiple titles in the same year since 2010 – after claiming titles in Munich and Kuala Lumpur three years ago.
The Russian, who will vie for his 10th ATP Tour crown in his 21st final, will face David Ferrer.
"I feel I served well and I'm happy to be back in the final," said Youzhny.
In the day's other semi-final Ferrer extended his perfect record against compatriot Nicolas Almagro. The 6-2 6-3 victory saw Ferrer's head-to-head record reach 14-0 with his fellow Spaniard.
