CARLSBAD, Calif., Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Top-seeded Victoria Azarenka will go against Samantha Stosur for the Southern California Open title after each won a semifinal victory Saturday.

Azarenka gained the championship match with a 6-0, 4-6, 6-3 defeat of seventh-seeded Ana Ivanovic of Serbia in the day's first semifinal match.

The Belarusian will be looking for her third crown of the year against fifth-seeded Australian Stosur, who advanced with a 7-6 (7-2), 6-3 victory over French wild card Virginie Razzano.

Stosur will need to overcome an 0-8 lifetime record against Azarenka if she is to win her fourth career title in Sunday's final.
