Svitolina downs top seed Kerber to reach final

Elina Svitolina upset top seed Angelique Kerber to book her spot in Saturday's Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships final.

The Ukrainian produced some scintillating tennis to beat the World No2 6-3 7-6 (3) and extend her winning run to 11 matches.

“I was just trying to stay in the moment and she was struggling a little bit with her knee. She wasn’t chasing balls down, it was very strange for me as I couldn’t get my rhythm,” the 22-year-old told assembled media.

“Obviously, with a semi-final, there’s extra pressure, it’s always tough.

“You never know what to expect from a final but I just try to stay in the same mindset as I am now.”

In the day’s other semi-final, Danish former World No1 Caroline Wozniacki reached the last two with a 6-3 6-4 victory over Anastasija Sevastova at the Aviation Club.
