Battling Radwanska in final

Top seed Vera Zvonareva also advanced to the final after seeing off Ana Ivanovic 5-7, 6-4, 6-4.

Radwanska, who has not won a WTA Tour singles title for three years, injured her shoulder at the Stanford tournament last week. In the other semifinal, Zvonareva repelled a late third-set charge from the Serbian, thanks to her ability to change the pace and angles.

Sania advances
Sania Mirza overcame a second set lapse to beat local wild card Heidi El Tabakh and move to the second and final qualifying round of the WTA Rogers Cup in Toronto.

Seeded 11th in the qualifying event, Sania dispatched the Canadian 6-0, 4-6, 6-0 after an hour and 42 minutes.

The Indian will next face Germany’s Kathrin Woerle, who defeated Russian Alla Kudryatseva 6-2, 7-5.
