Defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska is one match away from winning the Toray Pan Pacific Open twice in a row. 3rd seed Radwanska needed under an hour to beat Anglique Kerber 6-1, 6-1 in the semifinals. Radwanska hit 20 winners and made only four unforced errors in the match. Her opponent in the final will be Nadia Petrova, who defeated Sam Stosur 6-4, 6-4 in the semifinals. Petrova, who hit nine aces, had first and second serve win percentages of 85 and 63. (Oh, Nadia!)
Petrova is now 6-3 against Stosur.
