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.
