Heather Watson beat Caroline Garcia of France 6-1 6-2 to reach the final of the Monterrey Open.

The British number two will take on Belgium’s Kirsten Flipkens in Sunday’s final as she aims to win her third WTA title.

“I’m very happy to be in the final. I’ve played Kirsten a few times and she’s very experienced,” said Watson.

“It definitely won’t be easy so I’m going to have to bring my A-game tomorrow.”

Flipkens knocked out British number one Johanna Konta 6-3 6-7 (2-7) 6-1 in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, British number three Naomi Broady lost 6-4 6-3 to sixth seed Eugenie Bouchard in the Malaysian Open semi-finals.
