Top-seeded Ana Ivanovic reached her first final Saturday since winning the French Open in June, beating No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 in the semifinals of the Generali Ladies.
The Serb will play Sunday against second-seeded Vera Zvonareva, who routed No. 6 Marion Bartoli of France 6-0, 6-1.
It will be Ivanovic's fourth final this season. She won in Indian Wells but lost to Maria Sharapova at the Australian Open.
The fourth-ranked Ivanovic is 3-2 against Zvonareva, who will play her seventh final this season. She has also won two titles this year, in Prague and Guangzhou. Both finalists have won seven tournaments overall.
Ivanovic dominated the opening set from the baseline, but dropped serve three times in the second after facing nine breakpoints.
She had four aces in the deciding set.
Zvonareva, who only dropped two games in her last match against Bartoli, improved to 6-1 against the Frenchwoman.
The sixth-seeded Bartoli failed to hold serve in the match. Zvonareva saved five of six breakpoints.
