MEMPHIS, Feb. 29 (UPI) -- Lindsay Davenport earned a berth in the championship match Friday at the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships in Memphis.

Davenport, who won a New Zealand tournament in January, had no trouble getting past Marina Erakovic 6-0, 6-3 to reach the 94th final in her tour career.

She will meet Olga Govortsova in Saturday's title match. Govortsova earned a surprising 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 victory over Shahar Peer, who reached the finals here last year before losing to Venus Williams.

Davenport will try to win her 55th WTA Tour crown. She is the all-time money leader on the women's circuit with almost $22 million.
