Joelle King and Alison Waters will square off in the decider after contrasing semis in Matamata
A superb performance from New Zealand's Joelle King in the semifinals of the WSA World Tour's Matamata Open.
The world number 13 is through the final after a convincing straight games win over fellow Kiwi Jaclyn Hawkes. Fourth seeded King started strongly, taking the first game with ease, and never took her foot off the gas as she racked up an impressive 11-2, 11-8, 11-5 victory in just over half an hour.
Her opponent in the final is the resurgent Alison Waters from England. Waters is on the comeback from a serious knee injury, but looked none-the-worse-for-wear in a marathon five game victory over fifth seeded Malaysian Low Wee Wern. The former world number three twice bounced back from a game down to win 9-11, 11-7, 11-13, 11-7, 11-5 in a grueling 78 minutes.
King will be keen to avenge the one and only time the two finalists have met on tour, with Waters winning in straight games back in January 2010.
