Petkovic, Cepelova in Charleston final

Number 14th seeded Andrea Petkovic of Germany and Jana Cepelova of Slovakia advance to the finals Saturday, both rallying late in their matches to set up an unlikely championship on Sunday. Petkovic rallied in the final two sets to defeat sixth-seeded Eugenie Bouchard, 1-6, 6-3, 7-5, while Cepelova came back from 4-1 down in a third-set tiebreaker to defeat 17-year-old Swiss qualifier Belinda Bencic, 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 (7). Cepelova beat world No. 1 Serena Williams in the second round and is in her first WTA final.
