Simona Halep advances to final
In Saturday's semifinals at the Romai Tennis Academy, No. 3-seeded Halep defeated countrywoman Alexandra Cadantu 6-2, 7-6 (1), while Meusburger upset sixth-seeded Chanelle Scheepers of South Africa 6-2, 6-2.
Halep won the first set in 27 minutes and had several shots land close to the lines in the tiebreaker to win the match.
Meusburger has yet to win a WTA tournament. This will be her second final after Bad Gastein in 2007.
