India's Sania Mirza came back strongly after dropping the first set to beat Canadian Sharon Fichman 6-7(6), 6-3, 6-2 and enter the women's singles final at the Odium Brown Vancouver Open tennis championships in Vancouver.

Top seed Sania's title-clash will be with another Canadian, second-seeded Stephanie Dubois, who beat American Mashona Washington, also in three sets 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 on Saturday.

In the first set, Sania squandered a 4-1 lead, struggled through a marathon 12th game on her serve to force a tie-break and muffed two set points in the tie-beak before losing it.
