(Berlin) Donna Vekić will face Petra Kvitová in the final in Berlin after both players prevailed twice on Saturday.

Vekić edged out Maria Sakkari 6-4, 7-6 (8). Shortly before, she had beaten Elina Avanesyan 6-2, 7-6 (0), in a quarter-final postponed due to rain.

Sixth-seeded Sakkari defeated Markéta Vondroušová 7-6(7), 6-1 in the quarter-finals.

However, she lost to Croatian Vekic, who converted her fourth match point to reach a second final this season.

Wimbledon champion in 2011 and 2014, Kvitová first beat Caroline Garcia 6-4, 7-6 (3).

Then she ended a seven-game winning streak from Ekaterina Alexandrova, winning their semi-final 6-3, 6-4.
