OSAKA, Japan (AP) - Top-seeded Sam Stosur reached the final of the Japan Women’s Open on Saturday with a 7-6 (6), 6-2 victory against Elina Svitolina of Ukraine.

Stosur is looking for her third title in Osaka and will play fifth-seeded Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan, who reached her first WTA final with a 6-2, 7-5 win against Luksika Kumkhum of Thailand.

Stosur said “my game got better in the second set and hers maybe dropped a bit.”

Diyas needed just 1 hour, 7 minutes to dispatch Kumkhum, breaking her opponent three times in the first set and twice in the second.
