LUXEMBOURG, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki, seeking her first title in a year, will face Annika Beck after each took a semifinal victory Saturday at the Luxembourg Open.

Wozniacki, a former world No. 1, advanced to the Luxembourg final with a 6-4, 6-4 decision over Wimbledon runner-up Sabine Lisicki, reaching her second championship match of the season.

The Dane, who hasn't won a tournament since last October, finished second to Maria Sharapova this year at Indian Wells and is 20-13 all-time in title matches.

The 19-year-old Beck, meanwhile, reached her first-ever WTA Tour final in a 7-5, 1-0 walkover over Stefanie Voegele, who retired from the match in the second set.

The young German had previously reached the Poland semifinals in April, where she lost to Roberta Vinci.
