Russia's Mikhail Youzhny will face Serbian Janko Tipsarevic in the final of the Kremlin Cup on Sunday while Italy's Francesca Schiavone will meet Olga Govortsova of Belarus for the women's title.

MOSCOW, October 24 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's Mikhail Youzhny will face Serbian Janko Tipsarevic in the final of the Kremlin Cup on Sunday while Italy's Francesca Schiavone will meet Olga Govortsova of Belarus for the women's title.

The four all won their semifinals in straight sets on Saturday, Youzhny dropping just three games in a 6-2, 6-1 win over Kazakh qualifier Mikhail Kukushkin.

World No. 46 Tipsarevic beat another qualifier, Ukraine's Ilya Marchenko, 6-1, 6-4 to reach his first ATP Tour final, and Schiavone swept another Ukrainian, Alona Bondarenko, 6-4, 6-0.

The lone Russian in the women's semifinals, Alisa Kleybanova, lost to Govortsova 6-2, 6-1.

Youzhny, the No. 3 seed in the men's draw, will hope to go one better than in Tokyo two weeks ago, when he lost in the final of the Japan Open.

Schiavone is also coming off a final defeat in Japan, in Osaka last week, but like Youzhny will be expected to win on Sunday against world No. 67 Govortsova.
