During the Saturday semi-final, Caroline Garcia won with Jasmine Paolini from Italy in two sets, 6:1 and 6:2. The French player proved that she feels great on the Warsaw clay courts and defeated No. 1 of the world’s ranking Iga Świątek in the previous round was no coincidence.

– I am happy to be able to play once again in the tournament’s final on clay courts. Especially with this semi-final being a massive challenge due to a short time for rest after yesterday’s quarter-final game. Additionally, the conditions were difficult because of the ever heavier rain – said Caroline Garcia after her advance to the final.

In the second semi-final of the Warsaw tournament, Ana Bogdan from Romania had a stiff clash with Kateryna Baindl from Ukraine. The fierce match ended with 7:5 and 7:5. The challenger, risking the first service, made as many as eight double faults, with Bogdan making none. It will be the Romanian player’s first WTA tournament final.

– I managed my emotions quite well today. I knew it would be a tough match, both physically and mentally, as we were both tired. I wanted to play openly, and I was tactically well prepared. I tried to focus on each point – Ana Bogdan summed up.

In the only Saturday doubles semi-final, Maja Chwalińska with Jesika Maleckova from the Czech Republic lost to Anna Danilina and Anna-Lena Friedsam 6:7, 0:6. The Kazakh-German pair is awaited by the Poles, Alicia Rosolska and Katarzyna Kawa, in the final. The exact date of the doubles final is to be “decided” by the rain. After scrutinising weather forecasts, it was scheduled for Sunday, right after the singles final at 15.00.
