Michaela Haet of Australia dashed the hope of local Nudnida Luangnam 6-0 6-4 to set up the final showdown with Japanese Chihiro Muramatsu, who outlast top seed Harriet Dart of UK 7-6 5-7 7-5, in the US$15,000 Cal-Comp & XYZ Printing ITF Pro Circuit W2 at the True Arena Hua Hin on Friday.
The 18-year-old Haet who came from the qualifying round just like Nudnida proved more solid from the baseline battle which she won in just 68 minutes.
Haet and Muramatsu will play for the first ITF singles title of their career. The lefthanded Japanese won the marathon battle with Dart which consumed up to hour and 5 minutes.
The 18-year-old Japanese will go to the final with a 2-0 head-to-head record over the Australian whom she beat twice in their junior events two years ago.
