It is now decided who will be playing in the finals of Kungens Kanna & Drottningens Pris. In the girls single we have two expected finalists while we have a surprise in the boys single.
The players in the girls final are the first seed Daria Frayman versus the second seed Romana Cisovska. They are the two best ranked girls who have made it to the final of Drottningens Pris. The second seeded Ramona Cisovska rescued four set points in the second set before she could reach the final after 6-3, 7-6, against the Austrian Sinja Kraus. In the final she faces the first seeded Daria Frayman, who have managed to reach the final without dropping a set. In Friday’s semifinals the Russian defeated Kamilla Bartone in a tight game, which ended 6-4, 7-5.
– I think the girls final will be very even. Before the tournament I thought Cisovska would take it, so I have to stick with that. I think she has a little better offensive. Frayman has surprised so far, but it will be a very exciting final, says Rickard Billing, assistant tournament director.
In the boys finals, the German Max Wiskandt faces the Pole Dawid Taczala, which means that we will get a winner that’s not from Russia for the first time since 2012. Unseeded Wiskandt surprised us once again as he defeated Petr Kupuskin in straight sets. Taczala had a much easier trip to the finals when he won his semifinal with a comfortable 6-2, 6-2 against Arthur Cazaux.
– The Pole must be the favorite if we look at how he has played. It will be a tough final with two mature players. But if we look at past performance, I think Taczala is the man to beat, says Billing.
