Kerber enters final

Sydney: Former world No. 1 Angelique Kerber registered her eighth win in as many matches in 2018 with a 6-2 6-3 victory over Italian qualifier Camila Giorgi as the German advanced to the Sydney International final on Friday. Awaiting the German in the final will be Ashleigh Barty, who overcame a slow start to win her all-Australian semifinal against Daria Gavrilova 3-6 6-4 6-2. Meanwhile, Juan Martin del Potro overcame a stubborn challenge from David Ferrer to clinch their semifinal 6-4 6-4 and set up the title showdown against Roberto Bautista Agut in the Auckland Classic on Friday. — Reuters
