Bucharest, Jan 5 /Agerpres/ - The pairing of Romanian Raluca Olaru and Ukrainian Olga Savchuk on Thursday advanced to the finals of the WTA Shenzhen doubles tournament without hitting a shot, after top seeds Raquel Atawo (US) - Yifan Xu (China) withdrew from the competition.

No. 3 seed Olaru - Savchuk secured 13,544 dollars in prize money and 180 WTA points. This is the duo's second WTA final after the one they won in Tashkent in 2008.

Raluca Olaru has five WTA titles under her belt, which she claimed in Tashkent in 2008 (with Ukrainian Olga Savchuk) and in 2016 (with Turkish partner Ipek Soylu); Acapulco in 2011 (with Ukrainian Mariya Koryttseva); Nuremberg in 2013 (with Russian Valeria Solovyeva) and Linz in 2014 (with Georgian-born American player Anna Tatishvili).

The Romanian also played seven WTA finals in 2008 in Budapest (with German Vanessa Henke), in 2013 in Katowice (with Russian Solovyeva), in 2014 in Nuremberg and Baku (both with Israel's Shahar Peer), in 2015 in Nuremberg (with Spaniard Lara Arruabarrena), in 2016 in Rabat (with German Tatjana Maria) and Bol (Croatia), again with Ipek Soylu (Turkey).

Olaru and Savchuk will learn their opponents only on Friday, after the match between Russian pair Natela Dzalamidze/Veronika Kudermetova and No. 2 seed Andrea Hlavackova (Czech Republic)/ Peng Shuai (China).
