Budapest - Romania's Simona Halep will play for her third title of the year when she faces Austria's Yvonne Meusburger in the Budapest Grand Prix final on Sunday.

"I played very well in the first set," Halep said.

"It was a good idea to move her between the sides as she returns balls very strong from the middle."

Meusburger has yet to win a WTA tournament and this will be her second final after Bad Gastein in 2007.

Results from the WTA Budapest Grand Prix (x denotes seeding):

Simona Halep (ROM x3) bt Alexandra Cadantu (ROM) 6-2, 7-6 (7/1)
Yvonne Meusburger (AUT) bt Chanelle Scheepers (RSA x6) 6-2, 6-2
