EASTBOURNE, England (AP) Former Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska beat Sloane Stephens of the United States 6-1, 6-7 (3), 6-2 to reach the final at Eastbourne on Friday and stay in contention for a second title at the grass-court tournament.
Radwanska will play the winner of the second semifinal match between second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki and 18-year-old Swiss Belinda Bencic.
The ninth-seeded Radwanska clinched victory on her second match point with a mishit return that crept over the net and beyond the reach of Stephens.
Radwanska served for the match at 6-5 in the second set but Stephens broke before dominating the tiebreaker.
The Polish player, who won the Eastbourne title in 2008, lost to Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final in 2012.
