Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium followed Alize Cornet of France into the Gastein Ladies final after defeating Mandy Minella 7-6 (3), 6-3 on Saturday.

After a tight opening set, the second-seeded Wickmayer broke Minella three times in the second.

The 37th-ranked Wickmayer won one of her three career titles in Austria, the 2009 Generali Ladies in Linz.

Earlier, the seventh-seeded Cornet, who is looking for her second title after winning in Budapest four years ago, downed Ksenia Pervak of Kazakhstan 6-2, 6-2.


The third-seeded Pervak dropped all of her eight service games. She lost in the semifinals last year.
