LINZ, Austria, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Victoria Azarenka of Belarus and Germany's Julia Goerges advanced to the finals of the Generali Ladies Linz in Austria Saturday.

Azarenka, the top seed and current world No. 1, blew past Romanian lucky-loser Camelia Begu 6-2, 6-1, to reach her ninth final of the year.

Goerges battled back to edge Belgian qualifier Kirsten Flipkens 1-6, 6-2, 6-3. Goerges saved 4-of-7 break points and had help from Flipkens, who committed six double faults, including three in the final set.

Azarenka won 20-of-28 first-serve points and wrapped up the contest against Begu in just under 1 hour, 12 minutes.

Azarenka has five championship wins this season and is 3-1 lifetime against Goerges, who has three career titles.
