After two weeks of thrilling action, the ultimate day is just a night away for Mari Sakkari who will be playing her fifth final on Sunday. In the semifinals, Sakkari played with her utmost strength to bring the best out of her Spanish counterpart, Paula Badosa. It was never going to be a walk in the park for the Greek against Badosa who has a heavy game compared to other players.

Sakkari was well aware of what it would take and she gave it all. As a result, she defeated Badosa 6-2, 4-6, 6-1 to set herself against Iga Swiatek for the final showdown. She was more than satisfied and had to fight tears pouting from her lit eyes. “I worked my entire life to get to these late stages of the tournaments,” an emotional Sakkari said on court after her win. “I know it looks maybe silly to someone – it’s not like I won the tournament, I’m in the final – but it means a lot to me.”

On the other hand, third seed Iga Swiatek got the best out of 2015 champion Simona Halep as she beat the Romanian in straight sets. In a match that lasted for one hour and 49 minutes, Swiatek beat Halep 7-6(6), 6-4. And now the Polish will face Maria Sakkari in the summit clash on Sunday.
