Wang downs Svitolina and Muguruza
Hong Kong, China - China'a No 1 Wang Qiang staged an outstanding comeback on Saturday to defeat former Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza 6-7, 6-4, 7-5 and reach her first Hong Kong Open final.
The world No 24 had already seen off Elina Svitolina 6-2, 6-4 just hours earlier in a rain-delayed quarterfinal.
Wang now faces unheralded Dayana Yastremska in Sunday's final, after the Ukrainian 18 year old dumped out China's No 2 Zhang Shuai in the earlier semifinal. The 102-ranked Yastremska powered to a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Zhang to reach her first WTA Tour final.
