Ferro shocks Cornet for first WTA win — WTA roundup

WTA Bucharest Rybakina Tig Di Giuseppe and Siegemund reach semis

WTA Bucharest Rybakina Tig Di Giuseppe and Siegemund reach semis

This will be the first meeting between Patricia Maria Tig and Elena Rybakina, both of whom are seeking their first WTA singles title.

The story of qualifier Tig reaching the final against all expectations had provided the tournament's core narrative but she was swept aside 6-2 6-0 by 20-year-old Rybakina in the final.

The 24-year-old is making her first WTA main-draw appearance since 2017 following injury problems and taking time out for the birth of her daughter.

The unseeded Rybakina did not drop a set throughout the claycourt tournament, becoming the fourth player to achieve that feat this season following Sofia Kenin in Hobart, Ash Barty in Birmingham and Karolina Pliskova in Eastbourne.

Antetokounmpo appeared in all five of the Mavericks' Summer League games, averaging 5.8 points and 2.8 rebounds over 13.4 minutes per game.

Elena Rybakina knocked out second seed Viktoria Kuzmova to also reach the semi-finals, leaving Laura Siegemund - who will face Tig next after defeating Irina-Camelia Begu - as the last seeded player left in contention.

Elena sealed the opening set with a forehand victor at 5-2 and never looked back, storming over the rival in set number two to deliver a bagel and earn the title in style. But Cornet turned up her game to win five straight to close out the set.

Serving for the victory, the Kazakh held at 30 in game six to start a humble celebration of her career-best result, entering the top-70 with these points and continuing her march towards the top of the standings.
