CHARLESTON, USA

Astra Sharma is into her second career WTA singles final.

The 25-year-old continued her winning run in Charleston, snapping the eight-match winning streak of Colombian Maria Camelia Osorio Serrano with a 7-6(5) 6-1 victory in their semifinal today.

It sets up a final showdown with top seed Ons Jabeur of Tunisia, who like Sharma is aiming to win a first WTA singles title this week.

“She’s obviously playing really well,” Sharma said of Jabeur. “I’m really excited. I’ve never played her. I can’t wait to get out there. I’m playing really well and it will be fun to match up and see how I go.”

Aussie duo Ellen Perez and Storm Sanders will also feature in the doubles final at the WTA 250 tournament in Charleston.
