Unseeded Hungarian Greta Arn today continued her giant-killing act at the ASB Classic tennis tournament, beating fourth-seeded German Julia Goerges to make the final.

Arn's 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 victory means a meeting in the title decider tomorrow with defending champion and No 2 seed Janina Wickmayer of Belgium.

The result over Goerges means Arn has upset three seeds so far, including the No 1, Russia's Maria Sharapova at the quarterfinal stage.

She also accounted for Swede Sofia Arvidsson, the No 8 seed.
