Italy's Francesca Schiavone earned a seventh chance at her first career tournament victory Saturday. Schiavone advanced to another final when Svetlana Kuznetsova retired from the Bausch & Lomb Championships with a groin injury. Schiavone, the No. 3 seed, will face top-seeded Nadia Petrova on Sunday. Petrova beat 15th-seeded Lucie Safarova 6-3, 6-2.
