Martic won 10 of the first 11 games but fourth-seeded Safarova, who had bounced back from one-set deficits in all her other matches this week, did it again. “I’m excited to be in another final, and it brings me even more happiness when I’ve come through such a tough semi-final,” Safarova said.

World number one Caroline Wozniacki followed Safarova into the final in much simpler fashion, dispatching German qualifier Mona Barthel in 62 minutes, 6-1 6-2.  “I felt really good out there today,” Wozniacki said. “I’m really pleased
to be in the final, my seventh final of the year.”

Safarova won her only previous meeting against Wozniacki, a 6-4, 6-4
decision in the early rounds of the clay court event in Stuttgart last year.
