Nadia Petrova will be hoping to utilise her experience on Saturday, as she prepares to take on Urszula Radwanska in the final of the 2012 UNICEF Open. Petrova is competing in the 22nd WTA final of her career, whilst the young Pole will be playing in her very first.
Radwanska is starting to make a name for herself with some impressive performances, but she didn’t have to play in the semi-finals on Friday to earn her berth in the final. Former world No. 1 Kim Clijsters had to pull out of the tournament due to a left abdominal injury, leaving a clear path for Radwanska.
This won’t give Radwanska a huge advantage, as Petrova can’t have been particularly fatigued by her 6-4, 6-2 success against Kirsten Flipkens. The Russian should be hungry for glory here too, as she’s yet to win a grass court title.
Petrova appears to be the favourite to win the title now, but Radwanska will be stepping on court with nothing to lose. This could turn into a thrilling contest.
