Kerber keeps going ahead of Barty battle


The country's top-ranked female player shook off an early serving funk to come back from two sets down and set up a decider against two-time major victor Kerber, who dismantled plucky Italian qualifier Camila Giorgi 6-2 6-3 on Friday evening.

Kerber, a former No. 1 and the 2016 Australian Open champion, was 4-0 in winning the Hopman Cup and has added four in a row in Sydney en route to the final.

Giorgi, belying her ranking of No.100, defeated U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens in the first round, then ousted twice Wimbledon and former Sydney champion Petra Kvitova, before conquering her eighth WTA semifinal without losing a set over six matches between qualifying and main draw matches. "I made too many unforced errors".

However, Kerber - who will move back into the top 20 as a result of her return to form - is unlikely to have the home crowd on her side, as she will face Australian Ashleigh Barty in the final.
