Beijing - Qualifier Vania King of the United States will play in-form wildcard Zhang Shuai in Saturday's final of the $500 000 WTA Guangzhou Open in southern China.

King, ranked a lowly 124 in the world, recovered from a slow start to see off home hope Zheng Jie - ranked 58th - 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 in just over two-and-a-half hours on Friday.

The American will face China's 112th-ranked Zhang in the showpiece final after Zhang - roared on by the home support - emphatically defeated Yvonne Meusburger of Austria 6-1, 6-1 in just over an hour.

All the seeds were out the tournament by the semi-final stage.
