Tursunov will be going for his first ATP title in Sunday's final
The Russian, who saw off Briton James Auckland in the last eight, won 7-6 (7-2) 3-6 6-1 in the semi-final.
"Frankly, I didn't play well enough to win, but Tommy wasn't playing well," said Tursunov. "I think he got a bit tense during the match."
Third seed Tomas Berdych eased into Sunday's final with a 7-6 (7-2) 6-2 victory over Austrian Stefan Koubek.
"I've got reason to be pleased with the way things have gone, it's been a good week for me," said Berdych.
"I haven't lost a single set going into the final."
