Top Seed Pliskova Into Zhengzhou Final.

A surprising run by unseeded Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic came to an end in a semifinal loss to seventh-seeded Croat Petra Martic, who won 6-0, 6-3 at the Zhengzhou Open in China on Saturday.

Martic will face top-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic in the final.

Pliskova knocked off Australia’s Ajla Tomljanovic 6-3, 6-2 in the other semifinal.

While Pliskova is in her fifth final of the season (with three titles), she has only beaten Martic once in five career meetings.
