Luxembourg SF: [2] Görges def. [3] Rybakina 6-3 6-4

Julia was on fire and clutch in the same match. Such a rare sight to watch.

Rybakina played very well too, but couldn't do much, when Julia's shots went in.

Penko vs Julia final will be a juicy match hopefully.

Stats: Julia 28-15, Elena 20-8 if I remember it right.

Schade. Julia serves to well for Penko. No chance for the Latvian here.

I was quite impressed with Rybakina when I watched her earlier this year on clay. But having seen her a couple of times since then, I don't think she has too much upwards potential. Huge hitter but as her coach said, there's no intensity when it matters and she has no defense. She's pretty much a better version of Kuzmova at this point. Good enough to beat mid ranked scrubs but very far away from the rest.

Jule really has a very effective second serve. One of the best on tour. Hope she can keep this level up in the final tomorrow and defend her title like she did early this year in New Zealand...

Hopefully Julia can end the year the way she started it, with a title!

Weird, Rybakina made the final in my dreams last night. Thankfully I didn't place a bet, my dreams aren't prophetic it seems.

Some of those kicks on 2nd serves were monstrous. It reminded me kinda of Thiem's 2nd serves. (I address this comparison to Misaki Doi's coach to how to compare female players to men).

Julia could start the season with Auckland title and finish it with Lux title for a second year in a row

BTW, this surface is so fast like in Wuhan, it makes quality of the matches much better. If only more WTA tournaments on hard courts were faster.

Rybakina has had one long year full of matches... she needs some rest time.
