Ottawa's Gabriela Dabrowski is off to the French Open mixed-doubles final for the second straight year.

Dabrowski and teammate Mate Pavic of Croatia downed Slovakia's Katarina Srebotnik and Mexico's Santiago Gonzalez 6-4, 6-4 in Tuesday's mixed semifinals.

Dabrowski and Pavic, the top seeded team, had six aces, compared to one for their opponents.

They converted two of four break point opportunities and saved all three break points they faced as they rolled to victory in just over an hour.

In the final, Dabrowski and Pavic will face either Germany's Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Colombia's Robert Farah or the second-seeded team of Taiwan's Latisha Chan and Croatia's Ivan Dodig.

Dabrowski teamed with India's Rohan Bopanna to win last year's French Open mixed-doubles title.

Dabrowski and Pavic won the Australian Open mixed title earlier this year.
