Quebec City - French teen Oceane Dodin and US qualifier Lauren Davis, each seeking her first WTA title, advanced to the Quebec City hardcourt finals on Saturday with three-set triumphs.
Dodin fired 17 aces in defeating American Julia Boserup 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, to reach her first WTA final while Davis downed fellow qualifier Tereza Martincova of the Czech Republic 6-3, 6-7 (2/7), 6-2.
Davis, ranked 104th, needed two hours and 25 minutes to reach her second WTA final, the first coming last July at Washington when she lost to Belgium's Yanina Wickmayer.
Dodin, a 19-year-old from Lille ranked 132nd in the world, took one hour and 44 minutes to dispatch Boserup.
Dodin had never reached a WTA quarter-final until this week, but she did win her first International Tennis Federation development series crown two weeks ago at Barcelona.
Davis, 22, and Dodin have never played against each other in a WTA event.
