Top seed Johanna Konta had trouble beating Nina Stojanovic on Saturday. The Briton should finish the match in two games, but did not use the match ball in the second set. A third installment was needed, as we were able to break Serbka’s serve in the twelfth match.
– It’s a great honor to be in the finals. It will be just another match for me and I will try to go out on the field to win it. I will enjoy the game – said the accounts in an interview with the BBC. The Britons defeated Stojanovic 6:2, 6:7 (2), 7:5 and thanks to that she will be fighting for her first title since winning the 2017 Miami Open.
On Sunday, Shuai Zhang will stand in her way with the “Four”. The Chinese women also top out for the first title in four years. And in the semi-finals on Saturday, she defeated American Lauren Davis 6:4, 6:3. The Middle Kingdom representative only lost the service once, and tried to get three breaks on her own.
On Sunday, Konta and Zhang will compete for the first trophy on the grasscourt tour. The balance of competition between them so far is favorable for the British and is 5-1.
