Vera Zvonareva defeated Daria Kasatkina in the last QF of St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy 2019. The match lasted 1 hour 47 minutes. Former World No.2 won in straight sets – 6/3, 7/6(3). «It’s a shame we faced each other in QF. One of us had to win today. The match was good and very tough, too. I’m happy I pulled it off. I have enough time to recover and be ready for tomorrow. I believe I’m in a good shape now, hope I can show some good tennis game tomorrow», – Vera said.
Kasatkina still looks to win her first match this season. Zvonareva will vie with Donna Vekic for a place in the final. Aryna Sabalenka will take on Kiki Bertens in the other semifinal clash.
