The 30th edition of the Savcor Finnish Open in Mikkeli is this year again a women’s event as it was when the event started in 1990.

The first two rounds saw only one upset when Switzerland’s 9-16 seeded Ambre Allinckx beat seventh seed Anna Kimberley from England in four games.

The only Finnish player who survived was the fourth seed, Finnish Champion Emilia Soini, who beat Englands Katia Wells in three straight games.
