Ostapenko overpowers Lucic-Baroni for spot in Charleston final

Jelena Ostapenko/@Volvo Car Open.

19-year-old Jelena Ostapenko stunned No.11 seed Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in three sets to reach the final at the Volvo Car Open in Charleston, USA, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4.

With the victory Ostapenko is through to her third career final - and her first on clay - where he'll face fellow-19-year-old Daria Kasatkina.

"It's really nice to be in the third final, but first final on clay court, and especially here in Charleston," Ostapenko told press after the match. "I'm really looking forward for tomorrow's match.

"[Daria] kind of defensive player, and I think clay is her favorite surface, but I'm just going to try to stay consistent and be aggressive at the same time and just play my game."
