Stosur again started dominating things in the middle and broke Jankovic at 3-2. Jankovic got herself broken for the second time in the set at 5-2 and gave the opportunity to Stosur to serve for the match.
The Australian kept her serves on target and wrapped up the match in straight sets.
In the finals she faces Francesca Schiavone of Italy, who advanced into the final when Elena Dementieva of Russia retired after losing the first set 7-6 (3) .
Dementieva later said she pulled out because her leg injury surfaced again.
"I have a tear in my left calf, so it's very painful to even walk," said the Russian."Today was just a sharp pain. It was a bit too much."
