ISTANBUL (AP) Two months after the end of their engagement, Caroline Wozniacki could join former fiance Rory McIlroy in becoming a champion on Sunday.

Wozniacki will play Roberta Vinci of Italy for the Istanbul Cup title after they reached the final as seeded, 1 and 2, on Saturday.

While golfer McIlroy was building a six-shot lead heading into the final round of the British Open, Wozniacki was beating Kristina Mladenovic of France 6-2, 6-3 in the semifinals.

She will play for her 22nd career title and first of the year against Vinci, who was 2-1 up on their head-to-heads.

Vinci beat teenage qualifier Ana Konjuh of Croatia 6-4, 6-2 to go for her 10th WTA title in her 12th final.
