PARIS (AP) Lucie Safarova advanced to her first Grand Slam final with a 7-5, 7-5 win over former champion Ana Ivanovic at the French Open on Thursday.

The 13th-seeded Czech player, who upset defending champion Maria Sharapova in the fourth round, has not dropped a set in the tournament.

She will be up against either 19-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams or 23rd-seeded Timea Bacsinszky in Saturday's final.

Safarova is the first Czech woman to make it to the final at the French Open since Hana Mandlikova in 1981.
