The 20-year-old Svitolina, who now bids for her third career title, dominated throughout against seventh-seeded Anna Karolina Schmiedlova, breaking the Slovakian player's serve six times in a 6-0, 6-3 win.
Babos, who is one year older and will bid for her second title, broke unseeded Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic — her friend and doubles partner — twice in each set in a 6-4, 6-4 win.
Babos wobbled slightly, missing two match points and then double-faulting to give Mladenovic a break-point chance to get back into the game. But her nerve held and she sealed victory on her third match point.
