Wozniacki stayed on course for back-to-back claycourt titles when she shocked Russian top seed Elena Dementieva on Saturday with a 6-4 5-7 7-5 victory.

World number 12 Wozniacki, who won the Ponte Vedra Beach title in Florida last weekend, came out on top after a three-hour battle with world number five Dementieva.

Lisicki defeated French sixth seed Marion Bartoli 6-3 6-1, taking nine of the last 10 games to clinch her place in Sunday's final.
