PARIS (Agencies)-Kim Clijsters will face Petra Kvitova in the final of the Open Gaz de France on Sunday. Clijsters, who will be ranked No. 1 on Monday, defeated Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-1, 7-5 on her third match point. Kvitova cruised past Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the United States 6-2, 6-0. "I played aggressive, went for the line and tried to make her move," Clijsters said. Kvitova broke Mattek-Sands' serve three times in each set and wrapped up the victory in just 59 minutes with the help of powerful serves. The 20-year-old Kvitova was a quarterfinalist at the Australian Open. Clijsters won the event for her fourth major title. Clijsters took a 4-0 lead before Kanepi won a game. Clijsters dropped her serve three times in a scrappy second set and trailed 4-2 and 5-4 with Kanepi serving. Clijsters rallied to win the next three games. The unseeded Mattek-Sands won only 30 percent of second-serve points. Earlier, fourth-seeded Czech Petra Kvitova reeled off a succession of superb winners to crush American Bethanie Mattek-Sands 6-2 6-0 on Saturday and power into the Paris Open final. New world number one Kim Clijsters takes on Estonias Kaia Kanepi in the second semi-final later with the Stade Coubertin hardcourt arena filling up with fans after disappointing crowds earlier in the week. The spectators were treated to a fine display of controlled yet powerful tennis by world number 18 Kvitova, who quickly settled after both players broke serve in the first three games. Her expert returns and great passing shots, including one extraordinary winner when she was almost on her knees, boosted the Czech and the unseeded Mattek-Sands handed her the first set with a wild forehand. Kvitova, 20, broke again straight away in the second set and never looked back in pursuit of a third career title, sealing victory with an ace and a clenched fist to the sky. Doubles specialist Mattek-Sands, who made the last four partly because of Maria Sharapovas withdrawal through illness, has wowed the Paris fashionistas with her unusual knee-high socks but her weak serve was just as evident on Saturday.
