Caroline Wozniacki to face Kaia Kanepi in the final showdown – KDB Korea Open 2012
Former world number one, Caroline Wozniacki, has eventually made it to the final of a WTA Tour event in Seoul and will be facing the Estonian number one, Kaia Kanepi, for her maiden title of the season. The two leading contestants
of the tournament will face each other in the title match of KDB Korea Open on Sunday afternoon.
Currently ranked at number 11 in the WTA Premier Rankings, Wozniacki has been suffering from a terrible slump of form throughout this season and hasn’t been able to get her hands on gold. She is seeded number one in the Korea Open
field and was expected to end her title drought in Seoul. The Danish number one has shown her vintage class in the initial round matches but had to dig deep in the semi-final battle against the eighth seeded Russian, Ekaterina Makarova. Wozniacki won her first
three matches of the tournament in straight sets but laboured past Makarova in a gruelling three-setter, 6-1, 5-7, 6-4, to book a berth in the final.
On the other hand, the third seeded Estonian has been the other destructive force in the tournament, annihilating every opponent she faced. She also had a taxing three-setter, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4, against the sixth seeded American, Varvara
Lepchenko, in the semis. With the second seed Maria Kirilenko pulling out of the tournament due to injury, Kanepi is the second hot favourite contender for winning the Korea Open title.  She has already bagged two WTA championship titles this year and is holding
the world number 16 spot.
"I've played her before and I usually try to be patient and not take huge risks, because she can get a lot of balls back in play," Kanepi said of Wozniacki. "If my shots are working well tomorrow I will be aggressive, but if they
aren't, I'll stay patient. Our last match was a tough match - we've always had very tough matches."
Albeit Kanepi trails 2-3 against Wozniacki in the head-to-head series, she was victorious against the Dane in their last encounter. She ousted Wozniacki in the round of 32 at the French Open earlier this year and will desire to
replicate the similar sort of heroics in the Sunday’s crunch game. They both have faced each other on the hard courts four times and Wozniacki has won three of those matches to stamp her authority over the game. She is ever-hungry for the championship title
and aims at bagging one this Sunday.
