The singles and doubles finals are set at the Connecticut Open presented by United Technologies. Let’s take a look back at Friday’s results to see how we got there.

Kvitova, Rybarikova Into Finals
Magdalena Rybarikova defeated Camila Giorgi 6-2, 6-4 on Friday afternoon to earn a berth into the 2014 Connecticut Open finals, becoming the lowest-ranked player in the event’s history to reach the finale, and producing the first premier-level finals appearance of her career. The Slovak will face 2012 Connecticut Open Champion Petra Kvitova, who dispatched former Grand Slam Champion Sam Stosur 6-3, 6-1 in the evening session, will play in her third straight final in New Haven.

Klepac and Soler-Espinosa advanced past the duo of Jurak and American Moulton-Levy 6-7(3), 6-4, 10-8 in a doubles thriller on Stadium Court. Klepac and Soler-Espinosa squeezed through the first set via tiebreak, but were forced to another after Jurak and Moulton-Levy claimed the second set. However, they were able to hold 10-8 in the third to reach the finals.
