Capriati Advances to Final at Rogers AT&T Tennis Tournament

American tennis star Jennifer Capriati has advanced to her first final in more than four months Saturday at the Rogers AT&T hard court tournament in Montreal, Canada.

The second-seeded Capriati was leading the semifinal match, 7-6, 4-0 when her opponent third-seeded Jelena Dokic of Yugoslavia withdrew with a leg injury.

Sunday, Capriati faces the winner of the other semifinal between France's Amelie Mauresmo and Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia. Maursemo scored a straight-set win over Fabiola Zuluaga of Colombia Friday (6-0, 6-2). Hantuchova defeated Austrian Barbara Schett in straight sets (6-3, 6-3).

Thailand's Paradorn Srichaphan has reached the finals of the Legg Mason Classic tennis tournament here in Washington with a three-set win over fifth-seeded Marcelo Rios of Chile.

Srichaphan, the 14th-seed, overcame a first set loss to beat the former world number one in three sets (3-6, 6-2, 6-2).

The Thai player takes on the winner of the night match between top seed Andre Agassi of the United States and American James Blake. Agassi is a five-time champion at Legg Mason and is using the tournament as a warm-up for the U.S. Open, which begins later this month in New York.

Britain's Greg Rusedski has reached the finals of the RCA Championships hard court tennis tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Rusedski scored a three-set win over third seed Tommy Haas of Germany, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3. Haas was troubled by arm and elbow injuries that have plagued him this year.

The 14th-seeded Rusedski has beaten the top three ranked players in the run up to this month's U.S. Open. He takes on the winner of a match between ninth-seeded German Rainer Schuettler and Felix Mantilla of Spain.
