Kuala Lumpur, 6 March 2011 | AAP

Jelena Dokic reached her first WTA final since 2003 following a straight-sets victory over Michaella Krajicek at the Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur.

The Australian broke her Dutch opponent twice in both sets to complete a comfortable 6-2 6-3 semi-final victory in just over an hour.

World No.91 Dokic will be playing her first final since the 2003 Zurich event.

Dokic will now face Lucie Safarova in Sunady’s final after the Czech number five seed came through in three sets against another Australian, Jarmila Groth.

Safarova took the first set 6-2 but Groth broke early in the second to go 3-0 up before closing it out 6-3.

The two players then traded breaks in the third before Safarova landed the decisive blow in the eighth game to lead 5-3 before serving out a 6-2 3-6 6-3 triumph.
