Nottingham: Draw | Schedule

American Alison Riske, the No 6 seed, advanced to the final of the Nottingham Open by defeating Swiss Viktorija Golubic 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 at Nottingham Tennis Centre on Saturday afternoon.

Riske, ranked No 40, will face Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia, the No 7 seed, next.

Beatriz Haddad Maia beat Tereza Martincova: 6-3, 4-1 RET.

The American has proven to be a grass guru over the years, but a title has eluded her on the surface. Riske, a former Wimbledon quarter-finalist and a two-time WTA finalist on grass, reached the final in Nottingham in 2016 before falling to Karolina Pliskova.

“I’m always so excited to be back on grass, playing on a surface that I’ve always enjoyed throughout my career,” Riske said after her win over Golubic. “I’m just grateful to be healthy and playing some good tennis, and playing a final is always an honor. I’m very much looking forward to it.”
