20-year-old Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka (No 45) overcame in the Nature Valley International semifinal in Eastbourne the 2008 champion Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland (No 31) 6-3, 1-6, 6-3. Sabalenka emerged the winner after almost two hours of the first ever encounter between the pair.

Sabalenka will now contest the final against a Grand Slam champion and former World No.1: either Angelique Kerber (No 11) of Germany or top seed Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (No 2), who face off in the second semifinal later on Friday.
