WTA Elite Trophy: Red-hot Julia Goerges to face CoCo Vandeweghe in Zhuhai final

Julia Goerges play a forehand return to Anastasija Sevastova during their WTA Elite Trophy match in Zhuhai on Saturday

Zhuhai (China), November 4: Julia Goerges' fine form continued as she cruised into the final of the WTA Elite Trophy, with Coco Vandeweghe now standing between the German and a second tournament win in succession.

The champion at last month's Kremlin Cup, Goerges eased to a 6-3 6-3 victory over Anastasija Sevastova in Zhuhai, extending her winning streak to eight matches.

Next up for the big-serving German is a final against Vandeweghe, who also won 6-3 6-3 against Ashleigh Barty.

Goerges dominated from the outset against Sevastova, breaking in the first game and controlling proceedings thereafter as her forehand proved potent.

There was also much to admire in the performance of Vandeweghe, who offset nine unforced errors with 32 winners to leave Barty helpless in the day's second semi-final.

Vandeweghe, the second seed in China, will break into the top 10 for the first time when the world rankings are updated next week. However, Goerges is unlikely to be daunted by that fact, given she boasts a 3-1 record against top-10 opponents this season.
