CHJARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Andrea Petkovic rallied in the final two sets to defeat sixth-seeded Eugenie Bouchard 1-6, 6-3, 7-5 and reach the Family Circle Cup finals on Saturday.

Petkovic, seeded 14th, appeared overwhelmed by the 20-year-old Canadian early on, losing seven straight games and trailing 3-2 in the second set. That's when the German took control, winning four consecutive games to force a decisive set.

Petkovic was trailing 4-2 in that one before digging in a final time and breaking Bouchard's serve twice down the stretch to advance to her first championship since Washington, D.C., last August where she fell to Magdalena Rybarikova in straight sets.

This time, Petkovic will face either Jana Cepelova or 17-year-old qualifier Belinda Bencic.
