Paula Badosa beat Russian Daria Kasatkina 6-2 and 6-2 and qualified to play in the final of the Sydney tournament (WTA 500) against Czech Barbora Krejcikova, fourth in the world ranking of Professional Tennis Players. Kasatkina had beaten the Spanish Garbiñe Muguruza in the quarterfinals.

The 24-year-old Badosa, who will face Ajla Tomljanovic in the first round of the Australian Open that begins on Monday, is aiming earlier in Sydney for her third title this season after those she won in Belgrade (WTA 250) and Indian Wells ( WTA 1,000).

Krejcikova, after saving six match points, beat Estonian Aett Kontaveit 0-6, 6-4, 7-6 in the semifinal of the Sydney tournament. Badosa has won the two previous matches she played against the Czech player, in Madrid and Indian Wells. “I do not think that is very important,” clarifies the Spanish. “These types of players always find solutions, as they have shown in their semi-final. I have been very solid and aggressive in my game. I have executed the plan to perfection. I don’t think I should change anything in the final. We both arrived at a good time. It has been a difficult year, but I want to do my best at all the Grand Slam ”.
