Second seed Anastasia Myskina continued to battle her way towards the 10th title of her career in Stockholm with a semi-final win over Emilie Loit.
For the third time at this week's Nordic Light Open she took three sets to beat a lower-ranked player.
Myskina eventually prevailed 3-6 6-1 6-4 to reach her first final of 2005.
She will play Katarina Srebotnik who needed little time on Sunday to wrap up her rain-delayed semi-final against Vera Douchevina, sealing it 6-0 7-5.
Myskina said: "I wasn't happy with my game but I was never in serious trouble."
