MOSCOW — Samantha Stosur beat doubles partner Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-2, 6-4 and will face Simona Halep in the Kremlin Cup final.

In the men's semifinals, top-seeded Richard Gasquet defeated Ivo Karlovic 7-4, 7-5, while qualifier Mikhail Kukushkin upset defending champion Andreas Seppi 6-1, 1-6, 6-4.

The 10th-ranked Gasquet, still vying for the eighth and final spot in the ATP Finals next month, constantly beat Karlovic's serve-and-volley play with passing shots, and broke the Croat once in each set.

The 102nd-ranked Kukushkin and Seppi traded sets before Kukushkin took a 4-1 lead in the decider and served for the match at 5-3. Seppi broke back only to fall 40-love down on his serve in the next game. Kukushkin broke again when the Italian sent a shot into the net.
