Inaugural Moscow River Cup final to be an all-teenage affair as last seed falls in semis

Anastasia Potapova: Moscow River Cup finalist

Teenagers Anastasia Potapova will face Olga Danilovic in the final of the Moscow River Cup.

The 17-year-olds have defied the odds all week, and will now have the chance to compete for their first WTA Tour titles.

Former Wimbledon junior champion Potapova progressed after beating Tamara Zidansek, who retired with injury in the third set. In fairness, however, the Russian was 3-6 6-4 5-2 up at the time.

Serbian Danilovic’s win was even more impressive, ousting Belarusian fifth seed Aliaksandra Sasnovic 6-2 5-7 7-5.

The players, who have a combined world ranking of 391, will face each other on Sunday.
