Petra Kvitova is scheduled to face Victoria Azarenka on Sunday for an exciting WTA Championships finalYou can watch and bet on the action from the WTA Championships at bet365
Petra Kvitova became the first WTA Championships debutant in seven years to reach the the final of the competition on Saturday, as she overcame the threat of Samantha Stosur in three sets (5-7, 6-3, 6-3). The Czech has been a major force this week, and her match against Stosur was the first this week that she didn’t win in straight sets.
Kvitova’s opponent in the final will be Victoria Azarenka. Azarenka topped her group this week, and kept her title campaign alive with a 6-2, 6-3 win against Vera Zvonareva on Saturday. The world No. 4 will be eager to rise to the occasion in the final, but she’s struggled against Kvitova in recent matches (Kvitova has won the last three matches between the pairing).
Performances this week suggest that Kvitova has the edge, but her game can be high risk, so Azarenka stands a reasonable chance. Still, if Kvitova is at her best, she seems likely to be the eventual winner here.
Both players will be spurred on by the fact that a win here will elevate them to No. 2 in the world rankings. The winner will leapfrog Maria Sharapova into the second spot, as the Russian withdrew this week in the round robin phase.You can watch and bet on the action from the WTA Championships at bet365
