The world number one – who has also lost four finals this year, including at the Australian and French Opens – defeated Alberta Brianti 6-4 6-3 to set up a showdown with defending champion Sara Errani.
The Italian, seeded fifth, wasted little time in dispatching Switzerland’s Stefanie Voegele 6-1 6-2 in Portoroz.
Errani, who beat Anabel Medina Garrigues to win the title last year, has lost only eight games en route to the final.
