Aliaksandra Sasnovich and Alize Cornet meet in the semifinals of the 2022 Tennis in the Land.

Aliaksandra Sasnovich is coming off a straight set win over Madison Brengle that took 17 games to decide. In the victory, Sasnovich won 69 percent of her first serve points and 57 percent of her second serve points. Sasnovich won 65 percent of her total service points and converted on 4 of her 4 break points. Sasnovich got 63 percent of her first serves in play and hit 3 aces. Sasnovich looks to make her second final of the year and her fourth final of her career. Sasnovich has never made 2 final appearances in a single year. Sasnovich has won 6 of her last 8 matches on hard court.

Alize Cornet is coming off a straight set win over Shuai Zhang that took 18 games to decide. In the victory, Cornet won 75 percent of her first serve points and 47 percent of her second serve points. Cornet won 64 percent of her total service points and converted on 3 of her 10 break points. Cornet got 63 percent of her first serves in play and saved all 5 break points. Seven of Cornet’s last 8 victories have been decided in straight sets. Cornet looks to make her first final appearance since last year’s Chicago Open. Cornet looks to make her 15th career final appearance. Cornet has won 5 of her last 8 matches on hard court.

Sasnovich has won both meetings against Cornet in 3 sets. The most recent match was 2018 Brisbane. 

You can make a case for either side here, as they’ve both been up and down this year, and you’re never quite sure which player you’re going to get. With that said, Sasnovich has probably been the more consistent player this year, and she’s beaten Cornet twice in two competitive matches. That has to give her the edge.

I like Sasnovich to make her second final trip of the year.
