Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki beat Petra Martic 6-3, 6-2 on Saturday to set up an e-Boks final against Angelique Kerber of Germany.

Wozniacki is looking for her third straight title in her home tournament in Copenhagen and broke the Croatian's serve twice in each set to wrap up the win in 1 hour, 8 minutes. She lost her serve once in the first set, but didn't face a break point the rest of the way.

"We played tennis on a high level today. Petra played a good match, she served well and put pressure (on me) the whole time," Wozniacki said. "She slices a lot, so there's no way out. She doesn't want to play long duels so I had to put pressure on her."

Kerber beat third-seeded Jelena Jankovic 6-2, 6-1 in the other semifinal, breaking the former top-ranked Serb five times while never dropping the serve herself.
