Semi-final wins for Boulter and Burrage

Katie Boulter and Jodie Burrage will meet in the final of the Progress Tour Women's Championship after winning their respective semi-finals. 

Team GB Fed Cup star Boulter was too strong for Freya Christie, winning 6-3 7-6 in the last four. Burrage beat Alicia Barnett 6-4 6-2 to reach her third final in as many weeks.

She reached the final of the British Tour event on 4 July and then won the UK Pro Series event at St. George's Hill last weekend. However, the British No.7 lost to Boulter in their round-robin match on Thursday.

"I need to just play my game," Burrage said of the rematch. "Obviously Boulter has a very big game as well, she wants to take the ball and I think it will basically be whoever gets the first hit in that's what I'll try to do.  

"Keep my head, keep fighting for every point, because I saved a lot of match points [against Boulter on Thursday] so the match is never over until the last point."
