Tallinn – After almost nine months, Barbora Krejčíková will play for the title on the WTA Tour. The 26-year-old tennis player will compete for the first singles trophy of the season at the tournament in Tallinn with the home seeded number one Anett Kontaveitova after she turned the more than three-hour duel with the tournament number two Swiss Belinda Bencic in the semifinals. The Czech representative can win the fourth singles title in her career, the seventh in the final.

Krejčíková, a native of Brno, last reached the singles final of the WTA tournament in January in Sydney, where she was not enough against the Spaniard Paula Badosa. She was hampered by an elbow injury from February to May. She also won four straight singles matches for the first time since January. However, in the doubles, alongside Kateřina Siniaková, she continues to shine and last time they won the US Open together.

Krejčíková will face Kontaveitová, who eliminated compatriot Kaia Kanepiová in two sets in the second semifinal, for the third time. So far, the balance of their matches is 1:1.
