Andujar and Mayer saved all six break points against their serves and broke the wild cards five times to reach the final in their first tournament together.
Andujar is bidding to win his first doubles crown, having fallen in his first two finals. Mayer is seeking his second title. He triumphed in Buenos Aires last year with Oliver Marach.
