STRASBOURG, France (AP) — Fifth-seeded Dominika Cibulkova rallied past fourth-seeded Mihaela Buzarnescu 2-6, 7-6 (5), 6-1 to reach the final of the Strasbourg International on Friday.

Cibulkova won 12 of the last 15 points to reach her second final this season following her runner-up spot in Budapest.

Cibulkova, a semifinalist at the 2009 French Open, will take on third-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia in the final.

Pavlyuchenkova reached her first final of the year after top-seeded Ashleigh Barty of Australia retired due to injury while the Russian led 6-4, 1-0.
