Kalinskaya stuns Swiatek in Dubai semifinals


Qualifier Anna Kalinskaya defeated World No.1 Iga Swiatek in the semifinals of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships on Friday.

The 6-4, 6-4 victory snapped the Polish star's seven-match winning streak.

World No. 40, Kalinskaya, is the sixth-lowest ranked player to ever make the final in Dubai in its two-plus decade history, and is the first qualifier to reach the final at the tournament.

She will face World No.26 Jasmine Paolini of Italy in Sunday's final in an all-unseeded affair.
