World No.1 Dinara Safina fought from a set down to beat Venus Williams to go through to the final of the WTA Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome.

The 23 year-old overcame the disappointment of losing the first set to win 6-7(3), 6-3, 6-4 over the fourth-seeded American.

Safina will face fellow Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova in the championship match after the seventh-seed recorded a straight sets victory over sixth-seeded Belarussian Victoria Azarenka.

Kuznetsova, who also knocked out Serbian Jelena Jankovic, cruised past Azarenka 6-2, 6-4.
