BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Romania's Simona Halep will play for her third title of the year when she faces Austria's Yvonne Meusburger in the Budapest Grand Prix final Sunday.

In Saturday's semifinals at the Romai Tennis Academy, No. 3-seeded Halep defeated countrywoman Alexandra Cadantu 6-2, 7-6 (1), while Meusburger upset sixth-seeded Chanelle Scheepers of South Africa 6-2, 6-2.

Halep won the first set in 27 minutes and had several shots land close to the lines in the tiebreaker to win the match.

Meusburger has yet to win a WTA tournament. This will be her second final after Bad Gastein in 2007.
