Women’s Final: Petra Kvitova vs. Caroline Garcia

Petra Kvitova sealed the deal for her 12th WTA 1000 Finals appearance today, beating Madison Keys in three straight sets: 7(8)-6(6), 6-4, 6-3.

It is expected that she will rise in the rankings after the end of this tournament. The WTA predicts she’ll be 24th after that semi-final win, and if she gets her hands on the title, she could land as high as 15th. The runner-up would put her in 20th place.

In terms of active players, Kvitova is the 5th most appearance in the semifinals with Victoria Azarenka and Angelique Kerber with a total of 63 and a record of 39-23. She had some standout moments this week in Cincinnati, including saving a match point, leading 28 aces and winning 84.8% of her service games.
