Dubai, United Arab Emirates (Sports Network) - French Open runner-up Sara Errani booked a spot in Saturday's lucrative final at the $2 million Dubai Tennis Championships.

The fifth-seeded Errani handled good friend and doubles partner Roberta Vinci 6-3, 6-3 in Friday's semifinal action on the hardcourts at Dubai Tennis Stadium.

Errani is now 5-2 lifetime against her fellow Italian Vinci, including wins now in their last five meetings. The two women currently own three of the four Grand Slam doubles titles.

The 25-year-old Errani will appear in her second final of the year, having recently finished as a runner-up at an event in Paris. She is 6-5 in her career WTA finals, which includes four titles last year.

Errani awaits the Petra Kvitova-Caroline Wozniacki victor. The former world No. 1 Wozniacki was the Dubai titlist in 2011.

Saturday's big winner will collect $442,198.
