Suarez Navarro moves into women's final at Miami Open

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) Carla Suarez Navarro has advanced to the women's final at the Miami Open, after topping Andrea Petkovic 6-3, 6-3 in a semifinal matchup on Thursday.

The 12th-seeded Spaniard didn't face a single break point and will meet either top-seeded Serena Williams or third-seeded Simona Halep in Saturday's final.

It's the eighth time that Suarez Navarro has reached a WTA final. She's looking for her second title.

Petkovic, the No. 9 seed from Germany, lost to Suarez Navarro for the third time in five meetings. Petkovic had not dropped a set in any of her first four matches this year at Key Biscayne.
