(Reuters) - France's Caroline Garcia defeated compatriot Chloe Paquet 6-3 6-4 in the Strasbourg International semi-finals on Friday to set up a title clash with fifth seed Dayana Yastremska.

Garcia, the 2016 champion, dominated the contest, firing 11 aces and 24 winners, and did not face a break point in the match as she advanced to her first career meeting with Yastremska.

Earlier, the Ukrainian teenager moved into her second title clash of the season by stunning big-hitting second seed Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus 6-4 6-4.

After winning the opening set with a decisive break in the fifth game, 19-year-old Yastremska secured an early break in the second before sealing the contest on her fourth match point.
