Wozniacki will meet fifth-seeded Kaia Kanepi in the final after the Estonian posted a 6-4 6-4 triumph over Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak in their semi-final.

The world number 16, Wozniacki is eyeing her third title this season after downing Gajdosova in 75 minutes. The 18-year-old Dane fired four aces and saved five break points to book a spot in her third final of the year after winning titles at Stockholm and New Haven.

After failing to make it past the first round in her last two tournaments, Wozniacki has turned things around here, losing only one set in four matches.

Kanepi needed nearly two hours to get past Wozniak and advance to her second career final. Ranked 33rd in the world, Kanepi was a finalist at Hasselt in 2006 and has semi-final appearances at Acapulco and Seoul this season.

The final here will be the first meeting between Kanepi and Wozniacki.
