Both Petra Kvitova and Jelena Ostapenko have come through straight set wins in their last-four encounters to set up a showdown final of the 2022 Rothesay International Eastbourne on Saturday.
Kvitova ended Beatriz Haddad Maia’s winning streak at the Rothesay Open and Rothesay Classic with a 7-6(5), 6-4 defeat. The Czech lost to the Brazilian at the Rothesay Classic Birmingham last week, but turned in a sublime performance to flip the result in the semi’s.
The 32-year-old continued her dominance on serve as she managed to close out a second consecutive match without getting broken. She will now look to carry the momentum all the way to a fifth grass-court title.
Ostapenko has done well to bounce back from her surprise second-round exit to Dayana Yastremska in Birmingham last week. The Latvian has been ruthless in some of her wins and is through to her second consecutive final in Eastbourne without dropping a set.
She peaked in her semi-final encounter against Camila Giorgi and will enter the final high on confidence.
Petra Kvitova and Jelena Ostapenko are evenly matched in their previous eight meetings at a 4-4 deadlock.
