Sabalenka beats Radwanska to reach Eastbourne final

30 Juin, 2018, 20:53 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • Caroline Wozniacki won the Eastbourne title in 2009

The 20-year-old recovered from an error-strewn second set to outmuscle Radwanska in a match that saw 14 breaks of serve to reach her third WTA final.

The German leads the head-to-head with the Dane, 8-6.

At a sweltering Eastbourne, it was two-time Grand Slam champion Kerber who started fast, breaking in the fifth game as part of a four-game run that gave her the early initiative.

World number two and top seed Caroline Wozniacki, runner-up at the south coast event previous year, cruised into the semi-finals with a 6-4 6-3 win over Australia's Ashleigh Barty.

A lob victor allowed Sabalenka to break to begin the second set, but the Pole hit back straight away as her opponent's heavy hitting failed to pay off.

At 5-5 it seemed seventh-ranked Pliskova's greater experience would prevail but Sabalenka crunched a backhand victor to reach match point and could celebrate when her opponent fired a forehand wide.

"That was very tough", Wozniacki said. "I always have tough matches against Angie, and I knew it wasn't going to be an easy one today".

Sabalenka, who stunned Pliskova in the quarter-finals, took control of her match from the opening set with her aggressive play and the Belarusian racked up 25 winners.

Radwanska has won three consecutive matches for the first time since Wimbledon a year ago; this is her first semifinal since New Haven 2017.

"I tried to put the ball in and not go insane for every shot. It will be interesting", Sabalenka said.

Zverev will face Lukas Lacko in the final after the Slovakian recorded a 6-3 6-4 win over Marco Cecchinato, of Italy, in the other semi-final.

Both Lacko, who last reached an ATP Tour level final in 2012, and Zverev, a runner-up in Geneva previous year, will be competing for their first tour-level title on Saturday.
