In a tournament riddled with upsets and injuries, Petra Kvitova has made it through the tournament without too much drama. Aside from a 1-set hiccup in her 2nd round match, she handily defeated Marion Bartoli (6-1, 6-1) and Tamira Paszek (6-3, 6-2) in the 3rd round and quarterfinals respectively. In both matches, Kvitova established herself has the dominant player losing her serve just twice. The former Wimbledon champion is looking strong going into her semifinal match against Caroline Wozniacki. The Dane has a 3-2 head-to-head advantage over her opponent, though Kvitova was the victor in their last hard court match in the 2011 WTA Championships.
The winner will face 10th seed Li Na in the final.
