Belinda Bencic in action

Top seed Julia Goerges and Belinda Bencic both came through three-set matches to secure their places in the Luxembourg Open final.

German Goerges was two points away from defeat when she staged a brilliant comeback to beat the resurgent Eugenie Bouchard 6-7 (3-7), 7-5, 6-1 and reach her first final since the Charleston Open in April.

Qualifier Bouchard found herself 5-2 up in the second set, but Goerges won the next four games to book her place in the final.

She will face Bencic after the Swiss qualifier held off teenager Dayana Yastremska.

Bencic, whose last WTA Tour singles title came at the Citi Open in 2015, beat the 18-year-old Ukrainian 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (7-5).
