Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur reached her second successive Grand Slam final after a one-sided win over France’s Caroline Garcia in the US Open semi-finals.

Fifth seed Jabeur, who lost to Elena Rybakina in the Wimbledon final, needed little over an hour to win 6-1 6-3.

Jabeur, 28, will meet Polish top seed Iga Swiatek or Belarusian sixth seed Aryna Sabalenka in Saturday’s final.

Two-time French Open winner Swiatek, 21, plays 24-year-old Sabalenka later on Thursday in New York.

Before the first semi-final there was a moment’s silence held in memory of Queen Elizabeth II, who has died aged 96.
