Zahlavova Strycova reaches 1st WTA final in Prague

Eighth-seeded Barbora Zahlavova Strycova has reached her first WTA final by routing Patty Schnyder of Switzerland 6-2, 6-0 in the Prague Open semifinals.
The 24-year-old Czech needed just 53 minutes to dismiss Schnyder, a former top 10 player, on Saturday.
Zahlavova Strycova says it was "an unbelievable feeling" to win and adds she "played almost without errors."
"She plays a bit slow but clever tennis, so I had to be patient and it paid off," the 52nd ranked Zahlavova Strycova said about Schnyder.
Seventh-seeded Agnes Szavay of Hungary plays Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic in the second semifinal on Saturday.
