Muguruza vs Kvitova
Final in Dubai between Petra Kvitova and Garbine Muguruza.
This wasn't the expected final for sure. Both of the players made disappointing performances in Australia and this is the first tournament for Muguruza after that. She had a good draw and reached the SFs without facing so hard opponents on her way. I was absolutely sure that Halep will progress to the final, but she retired from the match before its start and that's the reason to watch Muguruza in the final stage of the tournament. Kvitova is in such a good form after Australia. She won the title in St.Petersburg beating players like Ostapenko, Goerges and Mladenovic. Now she will play her second final in a row, defeating really tough opponents like Radwanska, Svitolina, Goerges again and Wozniacki. I'm sure everyone expected a final between Halep and Wozniacki, repeating of the Aus.Open final, but everything got in the opposite way. Petra deserved the final- she was one set behind, Wozniacki served two times for the match in the second set and was broken back by Kvitova. Then the Czech was behind in the tie-break, but found the way to win it and then the match after 7:5 in the third set. She is so good right now and confident after beating nowadays world N1.
They have four meetings and Kvitova leads 3:1 winning the last three matches. I don't see how Muguruza will find the way to stop Kvitova in such a good form. Will play that cause the odds will drop till tomorrow for sure.
