WTA YEC: Wozniacki & Clijsters Win, To Meet in Finals

Though higher seeded than their opponents, both Caroline Wozniacki and Kim Clijsters were actually seen as slight underdogs against their opponents who both had impressive weeks. Wozniacki's opponent, Vera Zvonareva went undefeated in the round-robin matches while Samantha Stosur took the top spot in her group losing only two sets in three matches. But in the end, the higher seeds prevailed in shockingly similar fashion during the semifinals.

Both Wozniacki and Clijsters lost three straight games in the first set (Wozniacki actually lost four straight) and both had to save set points. Once they won the tight first set, however, it was cruise control for both of them, dominantly losing only one game between themselves. Wozniacki and Clijsters have only played once before, during the 2009 US Open finals where Wozniacki reached her very first Grand Slam finals and Clijsters put an exclamation on her comeback by winning her second Grand Slam title.
