"It was a difficult match," said Wozniacki, bidding for her 26th career title and first this season against 21-year-old Siniakova.

"She played very well, aggressively in the wind and the sun was very low," said the Dane. "It's a positive that I put myself in the sitation where I'm in a fifth final. I'm definitely going to try and make this one."

The win gives Wozniacki a first final on outdoor clay since 2011 when she was World No 1.

Siniakova, ranked 56th, ousted French Open quarter-finalist Garcia in a match interrupted three times because of the rain.

The Czech player made her first WTA final in Bastad a year ago, and has since won her first title this year in Shehzhen.

"It's amazing. The atmosphere is really good year, so I'm happy I could come back. I wasn't sure if I would play here again, but I'm back and in the final!"
