Fourth seed Vesnina has blazed a trail to the last four, not dropping more than five games in any of her three matches so far. The Russian is always a threat in these weakish hard court WTA events, reaching a final in Istanbul back in July. She has looked the class act in the draw so far this week, taking out Belarus' Darya Kustova 6-0, 6-1 in the quarters.
Fifth seed Niculescu enjoyed the best win over her life on Thursday, downing top seed and favourite Alexandra Dulgheru 7-6, 2-6, 6-3. It was the first time Niculescu had beaten a top 50 player and she was delighted, especially after playing through painful blisters.
Despite that, the manner of Vesnina's wins so far makes her the clear favourite for this one. She was in fine form at the US Open earlier this month, making the doubles quarters with her friend Vera Zvonareva, and will take some stopping this week.
