Svitolina's remarkable week continues

In a week that already saw her dismiss Caroline Wozniacki, Emma Raducanu and No.4 seed Marie Bouzkova, Svitolina engineered an impressive comeback to defeat Wang in the other semifinal. Down a set and Svitolina rallied to win 2-6, 6-4, 6-3 to advance to her first final since winning Strasbourg last spring.
