Kateryna Kozlova advanced to Taipei City final

Unseeded Kateryna Kozlova from EMPIRE Tennis Academy and Timea Babos (No. 4 seed) faced each other in the Taiwan Open final, to try to claim their first singles title of 2018.

No.4 seed Timea Babos of Hungary and Kateryna Kozlova (who is coached by Jaroslav Levinsky) of Ukraine each won their semifinals in straight sets on Saturday to advance to the championship match of the Taiwan Open.

Kozlova eliminated 2013 Wimbledon runner-up Sabine Lisicki of Germany, collecting a 7-5, 6-4 victory to advance to the first WTA singles final of her career.

Very little separated Kateryna Kozlova and Lisicki during their match. Kozlova had 18 winners to only 13 unforced errors in the match. Lisicki, meanwhile, had 32 winners, but those were almost all completely negated by 31 unforced errors, and those, as well as 6 double faults, often came at inopportune times, allowing Kozlova to eke out both sets.

Kozlova lost to Babos in the final 5-7 1-6.
