Saturday’s first semi-final at the WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai sees Anastasija Sevastova come up against Julia Goerges. Both Sevastova and Goerges progressed through the group stage with a perfect record, winning both of their group matches in straight sets to set up an exciting semi-final clash. The head-to-head record between these is split at 2 wins apiece heading into Saturday’s semi-final. It was Sevastova who won their most recent match, a 3 set win in the Mallorca final on grass earlier this year. Can an in-form Goerges reverse the result of their previous match and claim the first spot in Sunday’s final in Zhuhai?
