MANILA, Philippines—Alex Eala yielded to home player Eva Guerrero Alvarez, 2-6, 6-3, 2-6, in the semifinals of W25 El Espinar/Segovia on Friday evening (Manila time) in Spain.

The 17-year-old recovered from a first-set loss to force a decider but Alvarez displayed grace under pressure, zooming to a 5-0 lead in the last set and never looking back to book a finals ticket.
