There will be an unseeded champion at the inaugural Tenerife Open after Camila Osorio and Ann Li advanced to the final of the WTA Tour event.
Colombian Osorio defeated Camila Giorgi of Italy 6-4 7-5 while Li romped past France's Alize Cornet 6-2 6-1 as both sealed their place in a second title-decider of the year.
The 19-year-old Osorio, ranked 63rd, and 21-year-old American Li, the world No.60, are among the young generation of players making their mark in 2021.
Osorio, who earlier in Tenerife accounted for top seed Elina Svitolina, said she was fully tested by Giorgi in their semi-final.
"The match was really tough, so intense," Osorio said.
"I've never run that match before in my life, I think."
Li - who made her maiden final earlier this year at the Grampians Trophy in Melbourne only for the championship match against Anett Kontaveit to be cancelled due to scheduling delays prior to the Australian Open - hit 30 winners in just 15 games against Cornet.
"It's been an interesting year, but I think I've gotten stronger mentally, physically, and overall my game, so I'm excited to play tomorrow," li said.
"Hopefully I can bring my best performance tomorrow."
Osorio claimed her first WTA singles title on home soil on the clay courts of Bogota in April.
