Daria Gavrilova upsets Agnieszka Radwanska to move into Connecticut Open final

In a huge US Open morale booster, Gavrilova outclassed the former grand slam finalist and world number 2 6-4, 6-4 to set up a championship showdown with Dominika Cibulkova.

Gavrilova is chasing her maiden WTA Tour title after losing the final in Strasbourg in May to fellow Australian Samantha Stosur.

The 23-year-old will be brimming with confidence after guaranteeing herself a big rankings rise after holding her nerve to end Radwanska's six-match winning streak in New Haven.

Serving for the match at 5-4 in the second set, Gavrilova saved a break point with her second ace before closing out the contest in one hour and 33 minutes.

Gavrilova is projected to climb to number 22 in the world — and will crack the top 20 for the first time if she beats Cibulkova, the Slovakian former Australian Open runner-up who progressed to the final with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Belgian qualifier Elise Mertens.
