OEIRAS, Portugal -- Top-seeded Tomas Berdych eased into the final of the Portugal Open by beating Victor Hanescu 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday, while Carla Suarez Navarro won her first career title in the women's event.

Berdych will face either Carlos Berlocq or Daniel Gimeno-Traver in Sunday's final.

Berdych hit five aces and converted all four of his break points to dismiss Hanescu.

Suarez Navarro outlasted Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 to win the women's title. The Spaniard had lost her previous five finals, including last year's tournament in Oeiras.
