BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) - Top-seeded Sara Errani of Italy will meet unseeded Elena Vesnina of Russia in the Budapest Grand Prix final after straight-sets victories on Friday.

Errani beat Anna Tatishvili of Georgia 6-2, 6-1 for her 14th successive win on clay, and Vesnina eliminated fifth-seeded Marina Erakovic of New Zealand 6-2, 6-4 in the other semifinal at Romai Tennis Academy.

"Anna played a good match, she played strong, but maybe she was a bit tired after the long match she had yesterday,'' Errani said.

Tatishvili took two and a half hours to beat Aleksandra Wozniak of Canada on Thursday.

Errani reached her eighth career WTA final. She has won four finals.

The final will be the sixth for Vesnina, who has yet to win a title.
