Swiatek hit 28 winners and made just 13 unforced errors compared to the 20 unforced errors and 10 winners from the 27-year-old Pliskova.
The teenager will take on Polona Hercog, who overcame Fiona Ferro 7-5, 6-4, in Sunday’s final.
“I saw her in a few tournaments, but I’m still new on the WTA Tour,” she said of her next opponent.
“My coach will probably tell me everything – tactics and stuff – so I will be ready.”
