Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia advanced to his second final in as many weeks, beating Alex Bogomolov Jr. 6-2, 6-1 at the St. Petersburg Open on Saturday. The second-seeded Tipsarevic won eight straight games to close out the first set and take a 5-0 lead in the second. Last Sunday, he won his second career title at the Kremlin Cup. His first title came in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in September. ''Even though by the scoreline the match looked pretty easy ... on the court it really didn't feel easy,'' Tipsarevic said. ''I feel I was playing better from the base line, but the main difference today was that I was serving much better then him. I was winning one or two free points off my serve in every game, and he had to fight for every single point because he had no winners from the first shot.'' It was the second semifinal this season for Bogomolov, a Russian-born American who also made the final four in Los Angeles in June. ''I made a lot of mistakes, he made few,'' Bogomolov said. The other semifinal later Saturday will feature fourth-seeded Marin Cilic and 2004 winner Mikhail Youzhny.
