Wozniacki 5th final in 2017

Caroline Wozniacki has made four WTA tournament finals in 2017 without success but her fifth chance in Bastad looks to be a good one, her opponent being seventh seed Katerina Siniakova.  

However nothing should be taken for granted considering Siniakova disposed of third seed Caroline Garcia in an impressive semi final performance.
The 44th ranked Czech player did not drop serve in the first set, winning 67% of points on her serve and 55% on Garcia's.  The second set was tighter but Siniakova managed to secure the extra break to clinch a finals berth.

Hamburg will see an all Mayer final following the two semis - one all Germany, the other all Argentina.
Leonardo Mayer overcame the challenge of qualifier Federico Delbonis in straight sets to become the Argentine finalist.
Florian Mayer won through good fortune as fellow German Philipp Kohlschreiber had to withdraw when leading 6-4 2-3.

Atlanta will fittingly see an all American final, with second seed John Isner matched up against fourth seed Ryan Harrison.  Harrison knocked out Kyle Edmund who had previously ended the tournament for top seed Jack Sock.

In Gstaad, 170th ranked player Yannick Hanfmann took out another seed Robin Haase (6) to reach the final and meet fourth seed Fabio Fognini who's semi final victim was Roberto Bautista Agut.
Hanfmann lost the opening set but won two tie breaks to claim victory.
The final is on and Fognini is a set up.

Nanchung has its title winner for 2017, second seed Shuai Peng, successful in straight sets over Japan's Nao Hibino.
