STORY: Germany’s Angelique Kerber eased past American Madison Brengle on Saturday (April 25), winning 6-3 6-1 in the Stuttgart Grand Prix semi-finals.

Kerber will play Caroline Wozniacki in Sunday’s (April 26) final after the Dane beat second seed Simona Halep of Romania 7-5 5-7 6-2.

Kerber, who eliminated title holder and top seed Maria Sharapova as well as sixth seed Ekaterina Makarova in the two previous rounds, had little trouble against Brengle – the world number 43.

Too many unforced errors proved costly for Brengle, whose flowing baseline play troubled the German only in the first set as Kerber claimed a stake at becoming the first German since Julia Goerges in 2011 to win the tournament.

The world number 14, who needed 58 minutes to seal her victory, is on track for a second title of the year after winning in Charleston, South Carolina earlier this month following a bad start to the year.
