Goerges beats Flipkens to reach Linz final


LINZ, Austria (AP) — Julia Goerges defeated Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 Saturday to reach her second final of the season at the Generali Ladies.

The fifth-seeded German will play top-ranked Victoria Azarenka or Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania in Sunday's final.

Goerges dropped serve three times in opening set and double-faulted on the final point. But she collected an early break in the second and dominated the rest of the match.

The 19th-ranked Goerges, who also reached the final in Dubai in February, is looking for her third career WTA title after wins in Stuttgart last year and Bad Gastein in 2010.
