Palma - Anastasija
Sevastova reached the final of the Mallorca Open for the second year
running following her straight set semi-final win on Saturday.
The Latvian needed just over an hour on the grass courts of Spanish
city to defeat last year's finalist Caroline Garcia 6-4, 6-2.
Sevastova was superb, firing 14 winners and earning four breaks against the fourth seeded Frenchwoman.
Waiting for her in the final is Germany's Julia Goerges, who breezed
past CiCi Bellis 6-1, 6-1 earlier in the day to reach her first ever
grass court WTA final.
"It just feels special overall, it doesn't matter on which surface it
is - it's been a while!" quipped the 28-year-old after the match.
"I just feel great on the grass here, it's been a solid week for me. I'm
very happy to be in the final. I just try to play every match as best
as I can, and fight as much as I can.
"At the end of the day, I can say I've played four very good matches
here so far and obviously, I'm very pleased to play the final tomorrow
and going ahead to Wimbledon."
