Shahar Pe'er came within two points of reaching her third WTA Tour final of the year on Saturday, before losing 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5) to Germany's Sabine Lisicki in the semifinals of the Luxembourg Open. The 22-year-old Israeli, ranked number 38 in the world, led 5-3 against Lisicki (28) in the third set tiebreaker, only to lose four points on the trot and painfully miss out on a chance to win a third title in just over a month. Janko Tipsarevic will play Mikhail Youzhny and Francesca Schiavone will meet Olga Govortsova in the final of the Kremlin Cup after all four players posted straight-set victories Saturday. Tipsarevic of Serbia advanced to his first final by beating Ukrainian qualifier Illya Marchenko 6-1, 6-4, while Youzhny of Russia beat Kazakh qualifier Mikhail Kukushkin 6-2, 6-1. Schiavone of Italy defeated Alona Bondarenko of Ukraine 6-4, 6-0 to reach her second straight final in as many weeks. Govortsova of Belarus ousted Alisa Kleybanova of Russia 6-2, 6-1 to reach her second career final.
