Taiwan Open: Williams to meet Doi in the final

Venus Williams moved into the final of the Taiwan Open courtesy of a 7-5 6-3 win over Yulia Putintseva on Saturday.


The American hit six aces and saved a total of six break points in a match that lasted one hour, 42 minutes.

Williams won 85 per cent of points from her first serve in the opening set but Putintseva forced her all the way in twelve games.

However, Williams took control in the second set of the semi-final and will now meet Misaki Doi in the decider.

Doi secured her place in the final as she eased past Hsieh Su-wei 6-0 6-2 earlier in the day.
