MOSCOW (AP) _ Top-seeded Yevgeny Kafelnikov and second seed Petr Korda won semifinal round matches Saturday in the Kremlin Cup tournament.

Kafelnikov, backed by a hometown crowd, breezed past Daniel Nestor of Canada 6-4, 6-3, to move into Sunday's final. He lost in the final of the Kremlin Cup last year.

Korda, of the Czech Republic, had a tougher time beating Wayne Black of Zimbabwe 6-7 (4-7), 6-3, 7-5 in the longest match of the tournament, nearly 2 1/2 hours.

With a victory Sunday, Kafelnikov would make the World ATP Tour Championship in Hanover.
