LUXEMBOURG, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Ana Ivanovic of Serbia and Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova will meet Sunday for the title of the Fortis Championships at Luxembourg.

Ivanovic, the second seed, was an easy 6-4, 6-2, winner against un-seeded Russian Vera Zvonareva In Saturday’s semifinals. Ivanovic -- who clinched a berth in the season-ending WTA Sony Ericsson Championships in Madrid with her quarterfinal win Friday -- will try Sunday for her fifth career title and third this season.

She also won in Berlin and Los Angeles, and was a runner-up twice -- losing in Tokyo and at the French Open.

Hantuchova -- who knocked off fifth-seeded Frenchwoman Marion Bartoli, 6-2, 6-2 -- has just two career titles heading into the final, both at Indian Wells, Calif.

The 24-year-old Hantuchova won her lone previous meeting against Ivanovic, 19, in a match in Netherlands this season.

Sunday's winner will claim a first prize of $88,265.
