Virginie Razzano beats Kaia Kanepi to reach Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships final


World No.58 Virginie Razzano reached the biggest final of her career with a 6-1 6-2 victory over No.16 seed Kaia Kanepi at the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships.

The 25-year-old Razzano, who put out world number two Dinara Safina in the second round and followed up with fifth seed Vera Zvonareva, will relax with her boyfriend, a nice dinner and a glass of beer the night before facing Serena or Venus Williams for the title in Dubai.

The Frenchwoman has never played Serena and is 1-2 against Venus, having beaten the older Williams sister in three sets the last time they played, which was in 2007.

Razzano would like to play Serena this time: “Maybe it would be fun to try the new one. I’ve never played Serena so let’s see who it would be.
