Sevastova dropes out of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships

No.10 seed Caroline Wozniacki willed her way past surprise semifinalist Anastasija Sevastova, dispatching the Latvian, 6-3, 6-4, to reach her first final at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships since winning the event in 2011.

Wozniacki and Sevastova last met in the quarterfinals of the US Open, where Sevastova earned a career-best Grand Slam result but twisted her ankle early on, allowing the Dane to ease into her first major semifinal in exactly two years. Sevastova was far fitter on Friday night, pushing the former World No.1 through two tough sets, each of which came down to the wire.

By match's end, the Dane had struck 17 winners to 20 from the resurgent Latvian, but almost half as many unforced errors - 17 to 31 - and maintained an impressive 70% first serve percentage to clinch victory after one hour and 26 minutes on court.
