French top seed Marion Bartoli will face compatriot Aravane Rezai Sunday in the Bali Tournament of Champions' title clash.
Top seed Bartoli survived a late fight by Japanese veteran Kimiko Date Krumm to win their semi-final 6-1, 6-3 on Saturday.
Later, Rezai had a smoother ride against Spain's Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez, beating her 6-2, 6-3 in 64 minutes.
Bartoli has won both encounters against Rezai, the latest just over a month ago in the Tokyo second round.
The event features the 10 highest-ranked players who have won a WTA International title this year but who did not compete in the season-ending WTA Championships in Qatar, which ended last weekend.
