Carla Suarez Navarro cracks the Top 10 with first career Premier Mandatory final

Carla Suarez Navarro is making Spanish tennis history, becoming the third player from that country to become a member of the WTA Top 10, joining former world No.1 Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario and former world No.2 Conchita Martinez. The 26-year-old has achieved the feat, to be actualized on Monday, by reaching her first Premier Mandatory final with a clinical 6-3 6-3 upset of Andrea Petkovic on Thursday at the Miami Open. This has been a nice healing of wounds for Suarez Navarro, who had to withdraw from the Diamond Games final against Petkovic in mid-February due to a neck injury.

The Spaniard’s last obstacle to her second WTA title and $900,400 in champion’s prize money will be the winner of the semifinal between seven-time Miami champion Serena Williams and Simona Halep. (photo: Jimmie48)
