Elena Vesnina has the unenviable task of trying to stop Sara Errani on clay on Saturday after the pair booked their places in the final of the Budapest Grand Prix.
The Italian has won her last 14 matches on the surface and brushed past Anna Tatishvili 6-2 6-1 on Friday.
"It was not easy as the score suggests," she said.
"She played a good match, she played strong but maybe she was a bit tired."
Vesnina secured her spot with a 6-2 6-4 triumph over Marina Erakovic.
"In our previous encounters, Marina played more aggressive," Vesnina said.
"Today she was trying to exploit my mistakes and move me around and play the spin. I didn't expect that but luckily I still found the key to win."
