Russian Samsonova and Chinese Qinwen Zheng will play in the final


Lyudmila Samsonova and Qinwen Zheng will be played this Sunday for the title of the tournament tokyo by defeating Shuai Zhang and Veronika Kudermetova in an all-Russian-Chinese semi-final.

Samsonova, who eliminated the Spanish Garbiñe Muguruza in the quarterfinals, again showed a strong serve (13 direct hits) and a clear tendency to take risks, with 40 winners. His service allows him to almost always take initiative and avoid stress. In total, Zheng only surrendered 7-6 (4) in the first set, but in the second he struggled with the effort and the Russian won it 6-2.

For Liudmila Samsonova, 30th in the world ranking, the one in Tokyo is her third finals of the year. So far, he has extended his winning streak to 17 of the last 18 games.

The only favorite left in the running, Veronika Kudermetova (4), had a fierce rivalry with Zheng, who recovered from a first set loss to win 5-7, 6-3, 7-6 (3). It will be the first final for the Chinese, who joined the circuit this year from 126th place to the 36th position he currently occupies.
