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 will play either Daniela Hantuchova or Alison Riske of the United States in the final on Sunday.

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