Romania's Alexandra Cadantu and Hungary's Timea Babos advanced to their first WTA career final after semifinal victories at the Monterrey Open Saturday.

Cadantu defeated Hungary's Greta Arn 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, after Timea Babos had defeated the second seed Sara Errani of Italy 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-4 in almost two and a half hours in the first semifinal at the Sierra Madre Tennis Club.

After trading the first two sets, Cadantu made the decisive break in the 11th game of the third set and held her nerve on her next service game to advance to Sunday's final.
