(AP) Top-seeded Angelique Kerber overpowered Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 6-2, 6-0 at the Generali Ladies on Saturday to reach her second final of the season.

The 10th-seeded German used two breaks for a 3-2 lead in the opening set and didn't concede a game afterward. Kerber dominated with strong ground strokes, forcing Suarez Navarro to a total of 16 baseline errors.

The fourth-seeded Suarez Navarro, who hadn't lost a set getting to the semifinals, defeated Kerber in the fourth round of the U.S. Open last month.

In Sunday's final, Kerber plays either two-time champion Ana Ivanovic or Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland.

Kerber was beaten by Petra Kvitova of Czech Republic in the Tokyo final two weeks ago.
