Varvara Lepchenko let a great chance to reach her first career final slip by, as she failed to serve out the match then later missed on a makeable match point return and squandered a 4-2 lead in the second set tiebreaker before eventually falling to Angelique Kerber, 4-6, 7-6(4), 6-2.
Kerber is into her fourth final of 2014, but she has yet to win a title.
After two extremely tight, tense sets, Kerber broke the match open in the decider, saving the only break points she faced while breaking Lepchenko twice on four opportunities.
She owns a 1-4 career record against Serena Williams, her opponent in Sunday’s final.
