BIRMINGHAM, England -- Croatian teenager Donna Vekic reached her second career WTA final when she beat 2009 champion Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia 7-6 (5), 1-6, 6-3 in the Aegon Classic on Saturday.

Vekic, who turns 17 in two weeks, also beat Rybarikova en route to her first final in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, last September in her main draw debut on tour. That was also the last time she passed the second round in a WTA event until this week.

Vekic will meet either another Slovak, Daniela Hantuchova, or Alison Riske of the United States in Sunday's final.
