Tamara Korpatsch defeats Daria Snigur, she is the first player to qualify for the Transylvania Open semifinals

Tamara Korpatsch once again finds the solutions, winning in three sets against Daria Snigur, and becoming the first semifinalist at the Transylvania Open. Korpatsch prevailed with a score of 3-6, 6-2, 6-4, after over two hours of play.

Korpatsch is thus heading into her second WTA semifinal of the year, following her achievement in the summer at Prague.

For the third consecutive match, Korpatsch managed to summon enough resources to win in three sets. In total, in the three matches against Leolia Jeanjean, Jolie Burrage, and Snigur, Korpatsch spent over six hours on the tennis court.

Following her success against Snigur, Korpatsch will re-enter the top 100 players in the world next week, likely rising to around the 90th position in the WTA rankings.

Against Snigur, Korpatsch fought for every point, was attentive in the most crucial moments, and elevated her game precisely when it was needed. She essentially repeated her performance from the match against Burrage when she came back from 3-5 in the deciding set and reversed a 1-5 deficit in the tiebreak of the final set.

For her first career WTA final, Tamara will have to get past Ekaterina Makarova or Eva Lys.
