Eurosport - Sun, 07 Mar 08:59:00 2010

Daniela Hantuchova is closing in on her first WTA title in three years after beating fellow Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova 4-6 6-3 6-0 at the Monterrey Open.

Daniela Hantuchova - 0

The number two seed struggled early in the match as she lost the opening set, but fought back into the match before blowing her opponent away in a one-sided final set.

"I didn't have a good start," Hantuchova said.

"In the first set I didn't take my opportunities, so from the second set I decided I had to be aggressive.

"I haven't been in a final since three years ago, so I'm excited. I don't have anything to lose, so I'll just give all of myself."

The other semi-final was delayed by rain, and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova will face Anastasija Sevastova on Sunday morning for the right to face Hantuchova in the final.
