AP - Sports

MARRAKESH, Morocco (AP) -- Romina Oprandi of Switzerland beat top-seeded Daniela Hantuchova 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 to set up a Grand Prix SAR final against Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor of Spain on Saturday.

Torro-Flor defeated fifth-seeded compatriot Garbine Muguruza 6-0, 6-3.

It's the first WTA final for both unseeded players.

Oprandi, playing the full main tour since 2005, is just four tournaments into her comeback following nine months out with a right shoulder injury, which she sustained last year during a breakthrough season.

Torro-Flor missed the Australian Open because of a left leg injury and won only three matches this year entering this week. But she's knocked off two seeds and hasn't dropped a set to make the final on Sunday.

She beat Oprandi in their only previous meeting, two years ago in Bucharest.
