Japan’s Ai Sugiyama and Belgian partner Kim Clijsters defeated Zimbabwe’s Cara Black and Russia’s Elena Likhovtseva in straight sets 6-1, 6-4 on Friday to advance to the final of the women’s doubles at the French Open.

It is the fourth time Sugiyama has made it to the final of the doubles competition in a Grand Slam event. She reached the semifinal last year with Rika Fujiwara.
