MATCH NOTES:

No.7 seed Madison Keys is the only player remaining in the draw to have reached the final here previously – of three former champions (Kasatkina, Petkovic and Stosur) and three former finalists (also Cepelova and Vesnina) that began the main draw. She’s also only the only one yet to win a singles title on clay. Bertens owns four clay titles, Goerges owns two clay titles and Sevastova owns one clay title.

No.12 seed Kiki Bertens is the only player to advance to the semifinals without losing a set. She’s spent the most amount of time on court this week (5 hours and 39 minutes), although she’s also played one more match than Goerges, Keys and Sevastova, who all received first round byes.

No.8 seed Anastasija Sevastova would be the first Latvian singles champion here at Volvo Car Open; Bertens too, would be the first Dutch singles champion in Charleston.

No.5 seed Julia Goerges is the only semifinalist who owns a title so far in 2018 (Auckland). She is looking to become the fifth German champion here at Volvo Car Open (after Stefanie Graf, Sabine Lisicki, Andrea Petkovic and Angelique Kerber), while Keys is looking to become the ninth American woman to lift the trophy.
