Estonian Anett Kontaveit beat Lesia Tsurenko on Saturday to reach her second WTA Tour final in 's-Hertogenbosch, where she will play Russia's Natalia Vikhlyantseva.

The 21-year-old Kontaveit, at a career-high ranking of 49th, overcame a second-set blip to see off her Ukrainian opponent 6-3, 6-7 (0/7), 6-2.

Vikhlyantseva, 20, claimed an impressive 6-3, 7-5 victory in the other last-four clash over fifth seed Ana Konjuh to reach her maiden top-level final, as she continues a fantastic season that has seen her break into the world's top 100 and make her first Grand Slam appearances.
