Seeds No. 2 Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula staged two comeback wins at the Miami Open to advance to their second season final. They will battle against Leylah Fernandez and Taylor Townsend on Sunday.
On Friday night, Fernandez and her partner Taylor Townsend of Chicago defeated Magda Linette of Poland and American Bernarda Pera in an exciting 70-minute semifinal encounter.
After dropping the first set, 6-1, they recovered to take the next two, 6-2 and 14-12.
Townsend and Fernandez only had one ace in the tightly contested match, but they did a great job of managing unforced mistakes and protecting break chances (4-of-6).
On the other hand, American Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula defeated Australian Ellen Perez and Australian Nicole Melichar-Martinez, 7-6(5), 7-6(4) to reach the championship match. Ahead of it, the duo overcame No.6 seeds Elise Mertens and Storm Hunter 6-7(4), 7-5, [10-2] in the last eight.
The chaos brought on by rain delays on the doubles programme forced Gauff and Pegula to choose whether to compete in both the quarterfinal and semifinal on Friday.
Their day of double action began with the resumption of Gauff and Pegula’s quarterfinal contest against Mertens and Hunter.
When play restarted in the first game, the Americans were down 3-1. Mertens and Hunter survived a set point to claim the opening set, but Gauff and Pegula rallied to take the match’s tie-break.
Fernandez and Townsend are taking part in their second tournament together in Miami after losing to the eventual champions Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova in the second round of Indian Wells.
Townsend, who won Adelaide 1 and 2 with Asia Muhammad and Luisa Stefani, respectively, is vying for her third title of the year and the biggest of her career.
Fernandez is currently in her second doubles final overall after reaching her first doubles final in Auckland in January alongside Bethanie Mattek-Sands.
