Maia Lumsden will meet Freya Christie in Saturday’s final at the Aegon GB Pro-Series Sunderland after both progressed in straight sets.

Lumsden, the seventh seed, came through a second set tie-break and saved a set point to defeat 18-year-old Jodie Burrage 6-3 7-6(4) and reach her second ITF singles final of the year.

At the same time, Christie, 19, defeated fellow Brit Alicia Barnett 6-4 6-4 to set up a third competitive meeting with Lumsden.

“It was a good match, I served really well and that helped,” said Lumsden after her semi-final victory.

“I wasn’t broken in the second set so that played a big part. She (Burrage) was serving really well as well and I was finding it tough to get into her service games so I knew I needed to serve well.”

Lumsden lost to Christie in both of their previous meetings on the ITF Tour, but both matches took place over three years ago.

The seventh seed will be encouraged by her blistering start against Burrage, which saw the 19-year-old from Glasgow race into a 3-0 opening set lead.

After losing her serve twice, Burrage did manage to steal one of the breaks back but it wasn’t enough to rescue the set, which Lumsden claimed in 32 minutes.

Both players held serve comfortably in the second and the first break point came at 5-6, with Lumsden serving to stay in the set.

The Scot’s serve came to her rescue at 30-40 down and after saving set point, Lumsden edged the tie-break to book her place in Saturday’s final.

Christie, the world number 612, also needed to dig deep to battle past the unseeded Barnett.

After trading breaks of serve with her opponent at the start of the match, Christie raised her game at 4-4 to clinch a prolonged opening set.

Barnett responded well, taking a 2-0 lead at the start of the second, however she couldn’t maintain her early advantage as Christie fought back to take the win.
