STRASBOURG, France (AP) Veteran Mirjana Lucic-Baroni routed fourth-seeded Kristina Mladenovic of France 6-1, 6-1 to reach the final of the Strasbourg International on Friday, 19 years after losing to Steffi Graf in the championship decider.

The 34-year-old Croatian needed one hour to beat Mladenovic, a wild card playing in her first semifinal this season, saving all four break points she faced and breaking the Frenchwoman's serve five times.

Lucic-Baroni will face Caroline Garcia, who beat lucky loser Virginie Razzano 6-7 (3), 6-4, 7-5 in an all-French match.

Garcia had five aces, dropped serve five times, but broke Razzano seven times in a topsy-turvy match lasting nearly three hours.

Lucic-Baroni's last title came two years ago at Quebec City, while Garcia has one career title.
