Anett Kontaveit (203rd of the WTA ranking) and Ekaterina Alexandrova (37Th) will compete in the final of the WTA in Moscow. Kontaveit entered this round after defeating Marketa Vondrousova (35th) 6-3, 6-4, while her next rival won 4-1 and retired from Greek Maria Sakkari (7th).
The Estonian, with her triumph in the semifinals, reached the mark of 20 victories in her last 22 matches that she faced: it is already, virtually, 17Th of the world, and, if he wins, he will climb to 14Th position. This will be the tenth final that he will have in his career -fourth in the season-, with three titles achieved (two in 2021).
In the other side, the local will play its first final since January 2020: this will be the third it will play. For now, he has a trophy in his record and will seek to enlarge it. It’s already 34Th and it can go up to 31Th in case of crowning at home.
This will be the second confrontation between the two. Previous? On October 19, 2020, in the 16th finals of the Ostrava WTA: Kontaveit won a very tight match 4-6, 6-2 and 7-6 (6).
