PATTAYA CITY, THAILAND (TICKER) -- Second seed Henrieta Nagyova of Slovakia and No. 7 Patty Schnyder of Switzerland advanced to Sunday's final of the $110,000 Volvo Women's Open.

Nagyova reached her first WTA Tour final of the year and the 11th of her career on Saturday with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Tatiana Poutchek of Belarus.

The 22-year-old Nagyova has won eight career singles titles, most recently at Kuala Lumpur last year. She claimed this event in 1997.

Schnyder overcame No. 8 Rossana Neffa-de los Rios of Paraguay, 7-5, 0-6, 6-2, to move into her second championship match of the season. She lost UNIQA Grand Prix at Vienna, Austria to Iroda Tulyaganova.

Once ranked as high as eighth in the world, the 22-year-old from Switzerland has won six career titles but none since capturing Gold Coast in January, 1999.

Nagyova has beaten Schnyder five times in as many meetings, but Sunday's final will be only their third clash on the WTA Tour and first in more than four years. Nagyova won twice on the ITF circuit and another encounter in Federation Cup. They last met in the quarterfinals of the Maria Lankowitz event in 1997.
