'S-HERTOGENBOSCH, Netherlands -- Zheng Jie of China reached her first WTA final in 2 1/2 years when she beat Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia 6-1, 6-3 in the Topshelf Open on Friday.

Zheng won in her last final appearance in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2012, for her fourth career title.

She broke Rybarikova six times, and will meet American qualifier Coco Vandeweghe, who beat 2005 champion Klara Koukalova 6-4, 6-2 with nine aces a week after losing to the Czech on Birmingham's grass in the second round.

Vandeweghe, who has a 1-1 record against Zheng, will play in only her second final, looking for her maiden title.
