Zahlavova Strycova, Szavay reach 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 on Saturday.
The 24-year-old Czech needed just 53 minutes to dismiss Schnyder, a former top 10 player.
Zahlavova Strycova said it was "an unbelievable feeling" to win and that she "played almost without errors" against Schnyder.
"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.
In Sunday's final, Zahlavova Strycova will face seventh-seeded Agnes Szavay of Hungary who beat Czech Lucie Hradecka 6-2, 6-4.
The 49th-ranked Szavay will be battling for her fifth career title after winning in Budapest on July 11.
