TOKYO (AP) Former champion Caroline Wozniacki beat second-seeded Agnieszka Redwanska of Poland 4-6, 7-5, 6-4 on Saturday to advance to the final of the Pan Pacific Open.

Radwanska was close to victory, leading 5-3 in the second set, but Wozniacki seized momentum when she broke her opponent twice to win the last four games.

The U.S. Open semifinalist also came from 3-1 down in the third set, once again winning four straight games before closing out the match when Radwanska's return went into the net.

Wozniacki, a former world No.1, will face the winner of Saturday's later semifinal between Ukrainian Elina Svitolina and Naomi Osaka of Japan.

The Dane drew on all her experience against Radwanska, beating her for the ninth time against only four losses.
