Wright of pas­sage to Bali fi­nal

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

REIGN­ING two-time World Surf League women’s cham­pion Tyler Wright has won through to the fi­nal of the Bali event and will face Amer­i­can Lakey Peter­son.

The Aus­tralian yes­ter­day took down event stand­out Sil­vana Lima of Brazil in the quar­ter-fi­nals, fol­lowed by fel­low Brazil­ian Ta­tiana Weston-Webb in the semis.

“Th­ese heats were a lit­tle slow for waves so I knew there wouldn’t be a lot of op­por­tu­ni­ties,” Wright said. “Wave se­lec­tion was su­per im­por­tant as you had to make every­thing count. The waves are re­ally fun so (to­day’s fi­nal) should be a great day.”

In the men’s, Wright’s brother Mikey’s dream run con­tin­ued. The WSL wild­card won through to the semi-fi­nals af­ter de­feat­ing Brazil’s Wil­lian Car­doso.
