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.

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.

Kerber is into her fourth final of 2014, but she has yet to win a title.

She owns a 1-4 career record against Serena Williams, her opponent in Sunday’s final.
