Kaia Kanepi has been in great form this season, and she currently stands just one win away from her second WTA title of the season. The powerful Estonian has played with confidence all week in Estoril, recording wins over fourth seed Petra Cetkovska and top seed Roberta Vinci.
Kanepi’s opponent on Saturday will be Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro. Suarez Navarro appears to have enjoyed a more favourable draw, but she’s deserved her place in the final with a string of impressive displays. She booked her place in the final by cruising past Italian qualifier Karin Knapp in straight sets, 6-4, 6-0.
Kanepi and Suarez Navarro have a 1-1 head to head record prior to this showdown, with Suarez Navarro beating Kanepi at Wimbledon in 2009, and Kanepi avenging this loss on a hard court in last year’s Fed Cup. It’s hard to tell who will have the momentum on the red clay of Estoril on Saturday. This one could go right down to the wire.
