WTA Bogota 2016 schedule for Saturday, April 16 - Arruabarrena, Soler-Espinosa to take court today

Suneer Chowdhary in News 16 Apr 2016
Lara Arruabarrena takes court for her match today.

Action from the 22016 WTA Bogota will be live on Saturday, April 16 with Lara Arruabarrena and Silvia Soler-Espinosa heading the semi-final draw.

Fourth seeded Spaniard Arruabarrena will take on fifth seeded American Irina Falconi in the first fixture of the day at the campo estadio. The Spaniard has not dropped a set in the tournament so far.

She started with a win over Nadia Echeverria Alam in the first round and followed it up with another victory over Anne Schaefer in the second round. Arruabarrena went up against Sachia Vickery in the quarterfinals and beat the latter 6-2, 6-0 in straight sets.

Falconi beat Argentine qualifier Catalina Pella in the quarterfinals in straight sets after getting similar results against Emiliana Arango and Sherazad Reix in the first two rounds here.

The duo have met once before at the 2015 WTA Hong Kong where Arruabarrena had defeated Falconi in straight sets. A similar outcome can be expected for Saturday’s contest.

Spaniard Soler-Espinosa will be up against Paula Cristina Goncalves of Brazil in the second semi-final. The Brazilian downed Alexandra Panova in straight sets in the quarterfinal after achieving a similar feat against Tatjana Maria in the second round.

She had to work a lot harder for outfoxing her first round opponent Veronica Cepede Royg. She had lost the first set but managed to bounce back in the next two sets to claim the contest 5-7, 6-4, 6-2.

Espinosa was up against Amra Sadikovic in the quarterfinals. Although it was a good match with little to separate the two ladies, Soler-Espinosa broke her opponent at the right moments to claim a straight sets win. She had defeated Tereza Martincova in straight sets in the first round and followed it up with a three-set win over Anna Tatishvili in the second round.

This will be the first career meeting between these two ladies but the Spaniard holds the edge.
