Ons Jabeur continued her run of success the past two years at the Charleston Open by reaching the final while Belinda Bencic advanced to her maiden clay-court tournament decider.

Jabeur overcame Amanda Anisimova 2-6 6-1 6-4 in their semi-final on Saturday to advance to a meeting with Olympic gold medalist Belinda Bencic, who eased past Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-4 6-3.

For Jabeur it was just more good play on the green clay surface at Charleston, where she reached semi-finals of this event last year and a week later in a second tournament at the facility lost in the final.

Now, Jabeur has another chance of gaining her first win here and her second on the WTA tour.

Jabeur and Bencic have only played once on the main tour, the Swiss woman winning last year on the red clay of Madrid when the former retired in the second set.

“I think it’s going to be an interesting match,” Jabeur said.

“She plays kind of the same style as (Anisimova), you know hits hard.

“So I’ve got to say I got ready from the three sets today and hopefully, I can start good tomorrow.”

Bencic, who had upset second-seeded Paula Badosa to reach the last four, completed a routine win over Alexandrova and will return to the world’s top 15 when the rankings are updated.

Bencic feels comfortable and confident heading to the finals, planning on a good dinner and a good rest.

“I think it’s not going to be worse than before the Olympic final,” she said.

“That was a sleepless night.”
