Petra Kvitova will take on Caroline Garcia in the final of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati on Sunday.
Kvitova has had an amazing week in Cincinnati and is now in her maiden final here, having defeated Jil Teichmann, Sorana Cirstea, Ons Jabeur, Ajla Tomljanovic and Madison Keys while dropping just three sets in the process.
The Czech star has been a regular visitor here in Cincinnati and has reached the Semi-Finals on two occasions prior to this week. She is now one victory away from her second title of the year and 30th title of her career.
Kvitova holds a 8-3 winning record in WTA 1000 championship rounds, although she lost the last two in successive years (2019/2020). She has won 11 of her last 14 finals, including her victory against Ostapenko on the grass in Eastbourne two months ago.
Meanwhile, Garcia has orchestrated several upsets this week coming through the qualifiers. Nobody expected her to reach the finals here in Cincinnati especially after dropping a set in each of her two qualifying matches against Parry and Petkovic.
However, the French ace proved anyone wrong as he defeated the likes of Petra Martic, Maria Sakkari, Elise Mertens, Jessica Pegula, and Aryna Sabalenka to book her place in the final.
She has now become the first-ever qualifier to enter the final of a WTA 1000 event. Garcia holds a 9-3 record in finals and has recently won trophies in Bad Homburg and Warsaw.
Kvitova has won three of the last four meetings with Garcia and we expect her to grab another win here. Our prediction is Petra Kvitova to win at odds of 4/5 with Bet365.
Kvitova v Garcia is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 7pm BST.
