Shahar Peer of Israel advanced to the Baku Cup final by routing Polish qualifier Magda Linette 6-1, 6-1 on Saturday.

WORKS OF ART

Didn't know tennis and tattoos go together? Here's the physical evidence.

The 149th-ranked Peer will face Ukrainian teenager Elina Svitolina, the 2010 French Open junior champion who defeated fourth-seeded Alexandra Cadantu of Romania 6-1, 6-4.

Peer is bidding for a sixth career title in her first final since losing to Nadia Petrova in Washington in 2011.

The seventh-seeded Svitolina won her first title last November in Pune, India.
