NEW YORK -- A second-seeded tandem of American Liezel Huber and Russian Nadia Petrova posted a semifinal victory Friday at the 2010 U.S. Open.

Huber-Petrova reached the women's doubles finale with a 6-3, 6-2 spanking of seventh-seeded Yung-Jan Chan of Taipei and Jie Zheng of China at the National Tennis Center. Huber was a mixed doubles champion, alongside fellow American Bob Bryan, here on Thursday.

The 34-year-old Huber is a four-time Grand Slam women's doubles champion, including a U.S. Open title, alongside Zimbabwe's Cara Black, back in 2008.

Huber and Petrova will meet a sixth-seeded pairing of American Vania King and Kazakhstan's Yaroslava Shvedova in Sunday's finale, with the winning team claiming $420,000.

On Thursday, King-Shvedova topped a ninth-seeded pairing of Black and Australian Anastasia Rodionova 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. King and Shvedova captured the Wimbledon championship in July.
