NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) Second-seeded Petra Kvitova beat third-seeded Caroline Wozniacki 7-5, 6-1 on Friday night to reach the Connecticut Open final for the fourth consecutive year.

The defending champion will play fourth-seeded Lucie Safarova in an all-Czech Republic final. Safarova held off lucky-loser Lesia Tsurenko of the Ukraine 6-2, 7-6 (7-4).

"We are friends and it's always difficult to play friends for sure, even in the final," said Kvitova, practices with Safarova during the Fed Cup and when back home. "It's not always easy, but that's how it is in tennis and when we are on the court I don't we are really thinking about the friendship."
