Kasatkina beats hobbling Jabeur in Kremlin Cup final crying game

Ons Jabeur to play Kasatkina in Kremlin Cup final

The pair exchanged breaks at the start of the second set but Kasatkina grabbed the decisive break in the fourth game and put her foot down, winning nine successive points on her way to a 4-1 lead. I really appreciate I had this match with you today. "I remember 10 years ago as a kid I was coming here, dreaming to standing on the centre court and holding this trophy, the 21-year-old Kasatkina said. The dream came true".

Yet when Konta faced three set points on her own serve Kasatkina tightened up, allowing the former world number four to hold with a spectacular lob on the run.

Jabeur wept as she was consoled by Kasatkina after ending the match clutching her thigh, the world number 101 having come so close to a maiden title. "I'm sure that it's not the last final for you".

A finalist here past year, No.6 seed Kasatkina had to fight back from a set and a break down in the second to complete the turnaround and win 2-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4 after two hours and five minutes.

Cleveland Browns vs Tampa Bay Bucs
Credit the Browns for the comeback in a game they had no business being in position to win, but they should've still won it. They still have the league's top-ranked passing offense and will face one of the league's most inconsistent offenses.

Jabeur was a set and a break up at 4-1 in the second before she seemed to tire in her eighth match in as many days, allowing Kasatkina to claim a 2-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4 victory with vocal support from the home crowd. "Hopefully I will do more here next year".

In the deciding set Jabeur, who was playing her eighth match in eight days, looked obviously exhausted. After becoming the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam singles title, Osaka has received several lucrative endorsement deals and featured prominently in the media, including an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in the US. "With the recognition part, I do feel a bit different", she told reporters in Singapore. "I don't think she knows what to expect from her either", she said. "For me, I can't change who I am. This is really important for me". I'm also playing for my country.

Next up she is due to face fifth seed Anastasija Sevastova, who advanced after defeating Russia's Vera Zvonareva.
