Majeric pulled off a 6-2 5-7 6-1 victory over Israeli Deniz Khazaniuk, while third seed, Perrin eased past Bulgaria’s Julia Terziyska 6-2 6-2.

Majeric will be hoping to go one better than she did last year, when she was a beaten finalist in both legs of the competition- the second of which she lost to Switzerland’s Perrin.

The 26-year-old, who won the title in 2013, made a fast start on Friday afternoon, racing through the first set in 29 minutes, but Khazaniuk offered greater resistance in the second set- eventually edging it 7-5.

Khazaniuk had her chances in the third set, carving out eight break points, but her failure to convert was ultimately her undoing against an opponent who was a perfect three from three on break opportunities in the final set.

The women’s final comes up on Saturday, after the men’s title match between Spanish top seed, Enrique Lopez-Perez and Frenchman, Gianni Mina.

Lopez-Perez and Mina will face off for the men’s title from 10 am.
