Defending champion Brazil and Italy duel in the FIVB World Grand Prix final in Nanjing today.

The Brazilians overcame a sluggish start to beat Serbia 20-25, 25-23, 25-14, 25-23 in yesterday's semifinal. 

Tandara Caixeta led the defending champions with 24 points. Drussyla Costa added 11 points off the bench while Natalia Pereira chipped in 10.

"Teamwork matters. I am proud of my team which played well in serve, block and defence. Brazil suffered a lot and we also learned a lot. It is good to compete against the best teams in the world," Brazil coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes said.  

Italy also came back from a set down to stun host China 18-25, 25-23, 25-22, 27-25 in their semifinal duel. Teenage sensation Paola Egonu fired 26 points to lead the Italians. Cristina Chirichella backed her up with 14 points while Caterina Bosetti added 11. 

Raphaela Folie and Lucia Bosetti delivered 10 points apiece for the Italians, who are aiming to win their maiden World Grand Prix crown.

"This was an unbelievable match. We are glad that we had the chance to play against China. I am proud to advance to play the final tomorrow. It is such an amazing opportunity for Italy," Italy coach Davide Mazzanti said.

Brazil defeated Italy in four sets in their last meeting in this competition a year ago.
