Elina Svitolina eases past Garbine Muguruza in Dubai

Elina Svitolina- Dubai 2019- Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships  Regi Verghese

The German tennis ace, Angelique Kerber turned out to be the next big upset after the World Number one, Naomi Osaka was knocked out from the Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships.

Two-time defending champion Elina Svitolina extended her winning streak in Dubai to 11 matches after defeating two-times Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza 6-1 6-2.

Tsurenko managed just a single point over the last three games as former world number one Halep demonstrated her superiority by taking a 7-0 lead in their head-to-head record.

Slovak Viktoria Kuzmova reached a 2019 last-eight place for the second time this season after Auckland through a 1-6, 7-5, 6-2 defeat of American Sofia Kenin.

Simona went on to do some more shopping and picked up three gifts for her family members including perfume, headphones and baklava. "For me, it was really tough to find my rhythm, but also find out the way she is playing".

"And because previous year I wasn't even anywhere close to this ranking and people didn't pay attention to me and that's something that I'm comfortable with".

The Romanian wins her second straight match. The only absentees are No3 Sloane Stephens, who plays Acapulco next week, No10 Serena Williams, and No14 Caroline Wozniacki, who was forced to withdraw as she prepares to undergo medical tests for viral illness. "I feel confident when I play her".

This is the fourth year running Svitolina has reached the last four of this tournament, where she is eyeing a third title in a row.

"Definitely it's a relief right now", said Kvitova. The Czech won five of the opening six games, saving two break points at 4-1 to move closer to the finish line before Hsieh started to climb back, pulling two breaks back in games eight and ten to level the score at 5-5. In the final set, I did a little bit more.

"The wind was just awful today, to be honest", said Kvitova after reaching at least the quarter-finals for the fourth successive tournament. I feel that my game is pretty strong, also physically, even if I'm exhausted a little bit.

"See, it's a little bit hard because I feel like people are staring at me, and not in a good way".

Although she did have to break back when Tsurenko served for the second set at 5-4, winning the final 12 points to seal the victory.

It was at this point that Osaka briefly broke down and had to hide her face as she wiped away tears.

Double Wimbledon victor Kvitova has won all four of her meetings with Hsieh, most recently in January's Sydney International second round.

While she has
not consistently displayed her A-game this week it should come as no shock that Kvitova has made today's final.
