US Open top seed Caroline Wozniacki came back from a break down in the third set to beat Russian Elena Dementieva 1-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5) and earn her third consecutive trip to the finals of the Pilot Pen tennis tournament.
Dementiava survived three match points in the final set and was up 3-0 in the tiebreaker before Wozniacki rallied for the win on Friday.
The Danish star is 12-0 in matches in New Haven. She will play Nadia Petrova in Saturday's final. Petrova, a last-minute wild card entry to the tournament, moved into the finals with a 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 victory over Maria Kirilenko.
