The women's final is an All-American affair with No. 2 Lisa Raymond playing third-seeded Alexandra Stevenson, who's seeking her third title and first in the United States. Raymond defeated Ai Sugiyama 6-2, 6-1, and Stevenson downed Alina Jidkova 6-1, 6-2 to reach her first career final.

The 28-year-old Raymond has the edge in experience going into her ninth career final. But the 21-year-old Stevenson, who has played in 103 games this week, pointed to her exposure as the first women's qualifier to reach the semifinals at Wimbledon in 1999 as a good substitute.

``Now, I want to be getting my first win,'' she said.
