Brenda Schultz used her powerful service as a platform for her 7-6, 6-3 victory over the seventh-seeded Anke Huber, which earned her a place in the final of the German Open in Berlin. The German was unable to cope with Schultz's serve and went down in an hour and three-quarters. After losing the first-set tie-break 8-6, Huber could not find her way back into the match and although she did save before finally losing her nerve. Schultz will play Steffi Graf, the world No 1 brushing aside the Czech Jana Novotna 6-2 6-3 in the other semi-final.
