The Romanian player, who recently claimed the title at the Madrid Open on May 13, staged another high-level performance on Saturday to beat her Dutch opponent 7-5, 6-1 in 76 minutes, reports Efe.

In the match that opened Saturday's programme on the main court, Halep initially had to suffer to gain an advantage over a tough Bertens.

She now awaits her rival for the final, which will be the winner of the duel between Spain's Garbie Muguruza and Ukraine's Elina Svitolina.
