MOSCOW - Samantha Stosur beat her doubles partner Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-2, 6-4 to line up Simona Halep of Romania in the Kremlin Cup final on Saturday. Stosur will play for her second title in two weeks. Halep routed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia 6-2, 6-1 to advance to her fifth final this season. In the mens semifinals, top-seeded Richard Gasquet defeated Ivo Karlovic of Croatia 7-4, 7-5, while qualifier Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan upset defending champion Andreas Seppi of Italy 6-1, 1-6, 6-4. Kuznetsova couldnt hold serve once in the first set, winning just six of 23 points when serving, while Stosur was broken twice as well. Stosur took a 5-1 lead in the second but then failed to serve out the match twice. "At the start we were both struggling to hold serve and she had love-40 again on me and my second service again and I was able to get out of that," Stosur said. "And I think that gave me a little bit of a head up, and to win that first set 6-2 was good. It was still pretty tight all the way through." Stosur sealed the victory on her second match point when the Russian sent a shot wide. Stosur won her second title of the season and fifth of her career in Osaka, Japan, last Sunday. The Australian was runner-up to Caroline Wozniacki here last year. The 18th-ranked Halep, who has won the first four titles of her career this season, jumped out to 4-0 in both sets against Pavlyuchenkova. The Romanian sealed the victory on her second match point when Pavlyuchenkova double-faulted. "The score, it looks like it was very easy, but it wasnt," Halep said. "I moved very well and I hit the ball very strong. She didnt move very well. Id like to win my years fifth final but it will definitely be a hard task as Samantha is a top player in good form." The 10th-ranked Gasquet, still vying for the eighth and final spot in the ATP Finals next month, constantly beat Karlovics serve-and-volley play with passing shots, and broke the Croat once in each set. The Frenchman served a winner to close the match. The 102nd-ranked Kukushkin and Seppi traded sets before Kukushkin took a 4-1 lead in the decider and served for the match at 5-3. Seppi broke back only to fall 40-love down on his serve in the next game. Kukushkin broke again when the Italian sent a shot into the net. "I havent played in an ATP semifinals or finals for three years, so I desperately wanted to win," Kukushkin said. "In the tight end of the third set I had a stronger desire to win and it decided the match." Kukushikin reached his first final since winning his only title in St. Petersburg in 2010 and is the first qualifier to reach the final in Moscow since Paul-Henri Mathieu won the title in 2002.
