Vera Zvonareva reached her second straight Grand Slam final, upending top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-3 at the U.S. Open on Friday.
The 20-year-old Wozniacki made her first major final at Flushing Meadows in 2009 and had been dominant in her run so far this year. But the seventh-seeded Zvonareva knocked her off rhythm with powerful serves and aggressive play.
Zvonareva had five aces and won 70 percent of points on her first serve. The Russian won 13 of 17 points at the net.
Wozniacki had an uncharacteristic 31 unforced errors on another windy day at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Zvonareva, who turned 26 on Tuesday, had never been past the fourth round at the U.S. Open before this year. She lost to Serena Williams in her first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon in July.
