Sam Stosur's bid to make the finals of the Hobart International ended as she lost 6-3 6-2 to Klara Zakopalova.
Stosur received a lesson in taking opportunities from Zakopalova, who converted all five of her break points but saved eight of the 10 the Australian created.
Even worse news for Stosur is that on Friday she was drawn to play the 31-year-old Czech again in the opening round at Melbourne Park.
Zakopalova will face Garbine Muguruza Blanco in the final after the Spaniard thrashed compatriot Estrella Cabeza Candela 6-0 6-1 in the second semi-final.
