Linda Fruhvirtova advanced to her first career final by recording a 5-7, 6-2, 6-4 victory over Argentina’s Nadia Podoroska on Saturday in the semifinals of the Chennai Open in India.

The 17-year-old Czech saved 10 of 15 break points during a match in which both players committed 10 double faults. Fruhvirtova will face third-seeded Magda Linette of Poland in the title match.

Linette led 3-0 in the first set of her semifinal when Katie Swan of Great Britain retired due to a heat-related illness. Linette, 30, is looking for her third career singles crown.

Rybakina, the No. 3 seed from Kazakhstan, rolled to a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Romania’s Ana Bogdan. Rybakina had five aces and saved all eight of her break points.

Siniakova of the Czech Republic outlasted Italy’s Jasmine Paolini 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (5) in a quarterfinal match that was postponed due to rain on Friday. She then posted a 6-1, 7-5 victory over Germany’s Anna-Lena Friedsam in the semifinals.
