Holder Justine Henin-Hardenne sailed into the German Open final by humbling Amelie Mauresmo 6-1 6-2 in Berlin.
The number three seed was in blistering form
The French Open champion was in top form on the clay at the Steffi Graf Stadium and will play Nadia Petrova in a repeat of last year's Berlin final.
Mauresmo had earlier beaten former world number one Martina Hingis 4-6 6-4 6-4 in a quarter-final carried over because of fading light on Friday.
But the current world number one looked short of energy against Henin-Hardenne.
