Aryna Sabalenka defeated Simona Halep 6-3 6-2 to reach the WTA Stuttgart final on Saturday afternoon.
The Belarussian will face Australian world number one Ash Barty after she pulled off a comeback win against Elina Svitolina.
Sabalenka hit four aces but claimed victory in part due to three break points won, with Halep failing to break her opponent on a single occasion.
