TORONTO (AP) _ Jennifer Capriati outlasted Anke Huber 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 Saturday to reach the final of the Rogers AT&T Cup.

The top-seeded Capriati, who won the Canadian WTA event a decade ago at the age of 15, will play either Monica Seles or Serena Williams in Sunday’s final.

``Today I was pleased with the way I was hitting them,″ said Capriati, who assured herself of being seeded second at the U.S. Open by reaching the semifinals here.

``Today I was really making them and going for it. I wish every day I could play like that.″

In the first and third sets, Capriati broke Huber to go up 5-3 and serve for the set each time.

``I knew that I had the chance to beat her and I just made some unforced errors which were not necessary,″ said Huber, who plans to retire after the Australian Open in January.

``She always played the fast game, she always had the shots, but I think it’s more powerful now.″

Capriati played in the Canadian Open final in 1993, when she lost in three sets to Steffi Graf.
