Heather Watson cruised into the Aegon Surbiton Trophy final with a comfortable 6-1 6-2 victory over fellow Briton Harriet Dart.
Making her first grass court appearance of the season, the world number 113 broke her opponent four times to set up a final against Magdalena Rybarikova, who overcame Oceane Dodin 6-3 6-2.
Watson praised Dart, 20, and felt the British contingent showed their talent during the tournament.
She said: I’m feeling very good. It was a lot closer than the scoreline showed.
“Harriet is a great player, we’ve trained together and I know her well.
“They were tough conditions, it started off at a very high quality, but ended with a few too many errors.
“It’s great for British tennis that we had four ladies in the quarter-finals.
“This is definitely the start to the summer season I was hoping for.”
Watson had beaten Alla Kudryavteva, Jana Fett and Katy Dunne to reach the semi-final, while Dart had seen off Georgina Garcia-Perez, Lizette Cabrera and Karolina Muchova,
She said: “Grass is my favourite surface.
“I really enjoy playing on it, especially at home. I really love coming to the net and slicing, hence why I am playing on it every week.”
Her opponent on Sunday will be Rybarikova, who defeated Watson last year in Nottingham.
However the Slovakian is aware the Briton will pose a tough challenge.
She said: “I managed to win the match last year, but I didn’t move great and she didn’t play well.
“She’s playing well now, she’s a very good player on the grass and she’s the favourite here with a home crowd.”
Australian pairing Monique Adamczak and Storm Saunders won the women’s doubles final with a 7-5 6-4 triumph over Kai-Chen Chang and Marina Erakovic.
Saunders was delighted with victory in what was only the second tournament the pair had played together.
She said: “We had a tough first round playing against the number one seeds, but after that we played a really good match.
“We kept our momentum and worked our way through each match.
“It’s been a really good week for both of us.”
