Top-seeded Bianca Andreescu of Canada retired from Saturday’s semifinal match against Ukraine’s Lesia Tsurenko at the Thailand Open in Hua Hin.
Tsurenko was leading 7-5, 4-0 when the 2019 U.S. Open champion halted the match after one hour and 35 minutes due to a right shoulder injury.
The 33-year-old Tsurenko, who swept the last eight games of the match, will face Lin Zhu of China in Sunday’s final of the WTA 250 hard-court event. Zhu defeated countrywoman and No. 7 seed Xinyu Wang 6-2, 6-4.
