Kvitova sees off Wozniacki
Petra Kvitova will meet Italian Sara Errani in the final of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships after both recorded straight-sets wins.
Kvitova had never won a match in Dubai before this week, but appears to be returning to something like her best form and was too strong for former world number one Caroline Wozniacki, winning her semi-final 6-3 6-4.
The sixth seed said: "It's unbelievable. I'm really glad how I played, she was a very tough opponent and I'm very happy I'm in the final.
"At the beginning of the season I wasn't getting good results but I'm feeling very good."
Fifth seed Errani faced doubles partner and best friend Roberta Vinci and, as she did in the US Open quarter-finals last year, the 25-year-old came out on top, winning 6-3 6-3.
Errani said: "It's very tough to play against a friend. Sometimes it happens and we try to play normally but it's tough."
The Italian, a French Open finalist last year, has her work cut out if she is to lift the trophy, though, having never won a set in three previous meetings with Kvitova.
