Samantha Stosur will face Sofia Kenin in the Guangzhou Open final after each came through three-set semi-finals.

Australian wildcard Stosur (35) progressed to her first WTA singles final in two-and-a-half years as the 2011 US Open champion came from behind to beat Switzerland's Viktorija Golubic 2-6 7-6 (4) 6-1. Third-seeded American Kenin subsequently triumphed 7-6 (2) 4-6 6-1 against Anna Blinkova of Russia.

At the Toray Pan Pacific Open in Osaka, fourth-seeded Angelique Kerber advanced into the semi-finals after her last-eight opponent Madison Keys, the fifth seed, retired due to injury.

Germany's Kerber was leading in the final set at 6-4 4-6 2-1 when American Keys was unable to continue.
