Ostapenko and Kitchenoka were scheduled to meet with main favorites Belgian Eliza Mertens and Chinese tennis player Shui Zhang Jan, who was withdrawn from the final. Ostapenko and Kichenok were evicted as the second potentially strongest pair.
The final in the singles was not completed either – Brazilian Beatrice Hadada Maija was in the lead against Jan in the first set 5-4, when the Chinese refused to continue the game.
Due to the rain, the semi-finals could not take place in the singles on Saturday, so the remaining games in the tournament were postponed to Sunday. Thus, on Sunday, after winning three sets in the semifinals against the Romanian Soran Kirste, Jan was still scheduled to have a final in both singles and doubles.
It has already been reported that Ostapenko, who was number one in the singles, withdrew after the loss to Ukrainian Dayan Yastremsky in the second round.
The tennis players are preparing for the third Grand Slam of the season – the Wimbledon Championship, which will start on June 27.
