Super Saturday: Semi Finals

First up we had Elisabetta Cocciaretto v Yulia Putintseva. Putintseva dominated the match over Cocciaretto.  Putintseva used her aggressive game style to full effect. She was dominant and very focused. She kept her unforced errors low and kept the pressure on from start to finish. She is our first finalist, beating Cocciaretto 6.2/6.2.

Our second match of the day was Ajla Tomljanovic v Anastasia Potapova. This match was very tight, with Tomljanovic taking the edge over Potapova, winning 7.6/6.4. Tomljanovic kept the pressure on with her aggressive groundstrokes, but also varied her spin which disrupted Potapovas rhythm. She stayed very calm and composed throughout the match and got a very solid win.

Our doubles matches were action packed! Miyu Kato and Shuai Zhang were victorious over Marie Bouzkova and Sara Sorribes Tormo, winning 6.3/6.2.

Our second doubles match of the day saw Elise Mertens and Su-Wei Hsieh beating Asia Muhammad and Aldila Sutjiadi 6.1/6.2.

Looking ahead…Finals

Yulia Putintseva v Ajla Tomljanovic:
At this stage of the tournament both players are playing well and feeling confidentThis is Tomljanovic’s first final in five years, having missed most of the 2023 season due to recovery of knee surgery. This will be Putintseva’s first final on grass. Putintseva has won four of the five previous meetings but they have never played on grass. As we know Putintseva can be fiery, and Tomljanovic has stayed very calm throughout all of her matches. Lets see who controls their nerves first and can lift the Maud Watson trophy!

Miyu Kato & Shuai Zhang v Elise Mertens & Su-Wei Hsieh:
The doubles final will not disappoint!! 
All players are so fun to watch, points will be very creative, fast and reactive. Formations will constantly be changing and there will be lots of combinations of attacking and defensive play.
We have World No. 1 and 2 in the final against a very experienced doubles player M. Kato and S. Zhang.
S. Hsieh can hit any shot from anywhere and will always surprise her opponents. This match will be a great way to end finals day and the tournament.
