Caroline Garcia, the No.5 seed, beat Jasmine Paolini 6-1 6-2 at the Poland Open to advance to her 12th career final, where she'll face Ana Bogdan.

Garcia will seek her ninth career WTA title on Sunday, and second this year, after winning the grass-court Bad Homburg Open.

The Frenchwoman, who a day earlier ended top-ranked Iga Swiatek's clay-court winning streak, broke her 10th-seeded Italian opponent four times.

The former world No.4 served six aces on a rainy day in Warsaw en route to her 17th win in her past 20 matches.

Bogdan reached her first career WTA final by defeating Kateryna Baindl of Ukraine 7-5 7-5.

Garcia won their only previous encounter, beating the Romanian in the second round at Wimbledon in 2017.

Meanwhile, Anastasia Potapova reached her second WTA final of the season at the Prague Open by defeating Qiang Wang 6-3 6-0.

The Russian, who eliminated top-seeded Anett Kontaveit in the quarter-finals, will hope to add to her only WTA title after she won Istanbul in April.

In the final , Potapova will meet the No.8 seed, Marie Bouzkova, who defeated teenager Linda Noskova 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 in an all-Czech semifinal.

Wimbledon quarter-finalist Bouzkova will be contesting her fourth career final, and second this year. She has yet to win a WTA tournament.

The 17-year-old Noskova, who won the 2021 French Open junior title, was playing in her first WTA semifinal.
