Canada's Leylah Fernandez booked her spot in the women's final of the Rothesay International, picking up an upset win over American Madison Keys on Friday in Eastbourne, England.

The Laval, Que., native scored a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 win over the fourth-seeded Keys.

Fernandez, the world No. 30, will play for the title on Saturday against the winner of the other semifinal matchup between Italy's Jasmine Paolini and Daria Kasatkina of Russia.

In women's doubles, Ottawa's Gabriela Dabrowski and New Zealand's Erin Routliffe also won their spot in the final at the Rothesay International.

They outlasted Spain's Cristina Bucsa and Japan's Makoto Ninomiya 6-7 (2), 6-4, 10-8, to secure their place in the final.
