Tianjin - Top-seeded Karolina Pliskova will be looking for her second title of the WTA's Asian swing when she plays second-seeded Caroline Garcia of France in the Tianjin Open final on Sunday.

Pliskova, playing on a wildcard, needed only an hour to beat Timea Bascinszky 6-2, 6-1 in one of Saturday's semi-finals. It was Pliskova's fourth consecutive win in the last two years over Bascinszky, who is returning from a long layoff with a right leg injury.

Pliskova won the Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo, beating US Open champion Naomi Osaka in the final in September.

Garcia moved into Sunday's final with a 6-3, 6-4 win over fifth-seeded Hsieh Su-wei.

It marks the first final for Garcia since she won back-to-back titles at Wuhan and Beijing last year.
