No chance for Niculescu

Andrea Petkovic has reached the final of the WTA tournament of Beijing and is only one victory away from winning her first WTA-Premier-Mandatory-Event and her third title overall on the women's tour. The world's no. 11 defeated Monica Niculescu (ROU | WTA 57) 6-2, 6-0 in the semifinals. She also overtook Marion Bartoli (FRA | WTA 10) in the "Race to Istanbul" and is most likely to qualify for the WTA Championships 2011 in the turkish metropolis.

Andrea showed her will to win from the beginning. Although she got broken twice, she took Niculescu's serve four times and didn't leave the Romanian any chance hitting numerous winners. In the second set Petko shifted another gear up, broke Niculescu's serve three times and converted her first matchball.

In the final Andrea will face the winner of the match Flavia Penetta (ITA | WTA 26) against Agnieszka Radwanska (POL | WTA 12).
