Bacsinszky beats Wickmayer to reach L'bourg final

Oct 24, 2009 - 4:08 PM LUXEMBOURG (AP) -- Switzerland's Timea Bacsinszky defeated fifth-seeded Belgian Yanina Wickmayer, 3-6, 6-2, 7-5 on Saturday to make the finals of the Luxembourg Open.

Bacsinszky struggled in the third set to keep her lead, as Wickmayer fought back to tie the set 5-5 before the Swiss player won the match after the Belgian hit the ball into the net.

Bacsinszky will play for her first WTA Tour single's title on Sunday against either Shahar Peer from Israel or sixth-seeded Sabine Lisicki of Germany.
