Angelique Kerber registers 8th consecutive win, enters Sydney International final

WTA SYDNEY- Giorgi beats Radwanska to meet Kerber

Former world number one Angelique Kerber registered her eighth win in as many matches in 2018 with a 6-2 6-3 victory over Italian qualifier Camila Giorgi as the German advanced to the Sydney International final on Friday.

Kerber, who began previous year as No 1 before finishing at No.22, continued her 2018 resurgence with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Camila Giorgi, ending the Italian qualifier's run of six wins in the tournament.

Kerber, a former No. 1 and the 2016 Australian Open champion, was 4-0 in winning the Hopman Cup and has added four in a row in Sydney en route to the final. "I'm trying to be aggressive and play like I did the year before last". For me, it was nice to find the rhythm eventually but would definitely like to see it a little bit earlier in matches.

It also marks the ninth-straight singles win of her 2018 reawakening, a display that confirms she means business in next week's Australian Open.

"It's just the beginning of the year, so it's tough to say".

"Now that I am No.3 ... the first and foremost thing that I am thinking about and feel like I am capable of doing, regardless of whatever anyone else says. I was working hard in the last few weeks", Kerber said. "I'm just motivated to do it".

The other semi-final will be an all-Australian affair between Ashleigh Barty and Daria Gavrilova.

The Queenslander won 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 against a fiery Gavrilova, who struggled to find any consistency with her serve, and who earned a code violation for racquet abuse when frustrations boiled over.
