Paris:

Top seeded Italian Sara Errani (in pic) will play Germany's Mona Barthel in the final of the Paris Open after they both clinched easy semi-final victories on Saturday.

Errani was hardly tested as lucky loser Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands retired injured in the first set with a back problem when the 2012 French Open finalist was leading 5-0 and in full command.

Barthel sailed through the first set 6-1 against Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic before overcoming sterner resistence to close out the match 6-4 and reach Sunday's championship match.
