Errani to play Kvitova in Dubai WTA final
10:56 AEST Sat Feb 23 2013

Petra Kvitova will bid for the trophy at the WTA's Dubai Open on Saturday after dispatching former number one Carolina Wozniacki 6-3 6-4 to set up a title match with Sara Errani.

The Italian, last year's Roland Garros finalist and ranked seventh to Kvitova's eighth, won her fifth straight match over friend and Grand Slam-winning doubles partner Roberta Vinci 6-3 6-3 on Friday.

Kvitova defeated Wozniacki, a former number one and 2011 Dubai champion, in less than 90 minutes with a break in the final game as Wozniacki, out of electronic linecalling challenges, hit an overhead backhand apparently wide. Without the chance to see the replay, she conceded the match.

Kvitova, who stood second in the world in late 2011 after winning Wimbledon that year, takes a perfect 3-0 record into her final with Errani. All three of her victories came last season.

The Czech improved to 4-3 over Wozniacki and will be playing for her tenth title.

"I'm really happy that I'm in the final, and I'm really glad how I played today," said Kvitova. "It was a great match.

"Erani's a top 10 player. She has a good forehand with a big spin and quite fast on the backhand. It will be tough match tomorrow."

Vinci and Errani won two doubles titles at the majors in 2012, claiming the honours at Roland Garros and the US Open and starting this season in the best possible way with a title at the Australian Open.

But in singles, it's been one-way traffic for Errani. "I just tried to play my game, tried to be more solid as I can," said the winner. "It's very tough because we know each other very well.

"It's not a match that I just see normally and say, 'Try to play your game'. It's tension, it's tough. And it's tough to play against one person and know what you're going to do in every shot."

The match was marred by multiple breaks of serve, with nine converted from 20 opportunities.

Errani is coming off the best season of her career in 2012, winning four singles and eight doubles titles.
