Davis to meet Dodin in Quebec finale


Lauren Davis will meet Oceane Dodin in the Coupe Banque Nationale final on Sunday after battling through her last-four encounter with Tereza Martincova.

Davis - the highest-ranked player left in the tournament - needed two-and-a-half hours to overcome her Czech rival on Saturday, the American claiming a 6-3 6-7 (2-7) 6-2 victory.

It will be Davis' second WTA final of the season, and she will hope to go one better than her performance at the Washington Open in July when she was beaten by Yanina Wickmayer.

World number 132 Dodin will compete in her maiden final after seeing off the challenge of Julia Boserup, the 19-year-old progressing thanks to a 6-4 3-6 6-2 victory that included 17 aces.
