Defending champion Kiki Bertens will face Czech qualifier Barbora Krejcikova in the final of the Nuremberg Cup. Barbora defeated Sorana Cirstea 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 and Bertens advanced in the other semifinal on Friday when Misaki Doi became the sixth player to retire while Bertens was leading 6-2, 0-1.

Bertens, from the Netherlands, has a 12-1 all-time win-loss record in Nuremberg and Krejcikova is going for her first career title.

“There are no expectations for me,” Krejcikova said. “I will just go out there and try to play my game, try to do my best, fight for every point and just enjoy the final.”
