Doubles partners Babos and Safarova to contest Hungarian Open final

Timea Babos will face doubles partner Lucie Safarova in the Hungarian Ladies Open in Budapest on Sunday.

Safarova, seeded No. 2, progressed to the final first on Saturday with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Carina Witthoeft in 84 minutes.

Babos, the top seed, also won in straight-sets against Julia Goerges, but some of the early exchanges meant her passage wasn't as smooth.

The home favourite went on to win 7-5, 6-1 before she was due to play alongside Safarova in the doubles semifinals.
