On Sunday, Marie Bouzková of the Czech Republic will compete against Anastasia Potapova of Russia in the opening round of the 2022 WTA Prague Open.
In the semifinal round on Saturday, Anastasia Potapova defeated China’s Wang Qiang to extend her impressive run in the Prague Open. The Russian player required just an hour to defeat the Chinese player 6-3, 6-0 and advance to her fourth career final and second of the season after losing back-to-back semifinal matches in Lausanne and Hamburg over the previous two weeks. The World No. 2 and first seed Anett Kontaveit was defeated by No. 59-ranked Potapova 6-1, 6-1 in the quarterfinal on Friday. It was the Russian’s third victory this week over a Chinese player after his win on Saturday. She had defeated Wang Xinyu and Zhu Lin in her first two matches, respectively. Potapova, who hasn’t dropped a set this week, enters the final in incredible shape and will be vying for her second championship.
In the semifinal, Marie Bouzkova defeated her countrywoman Linda Noskova and advanced to her second WTA final of the year. The World No. 66 eliminated the 17-year-old Noskova in an hour and 42 minutes after never making it past the first round in Prague. Bouzkova, who hasn’t lost a set either, defeated Sinja Kraus in straight sets to start her Prague assault. She kept up her winning streak by defeating Oksana Selekhmeteva in the quarterfinal and Dominika Salkova in the second round. Bouzkova, who has yet to win a WTA championship, will aim to do so in front of her local audience.
Anastasia Potapova and Marie Bbouzkova will face each other in the final round of the 2022 WTA Prague Open on Sunday, July 31. The WTA 250 competition is scheduled to start from July 25 and end on July 31 this year.
